Ciociaria published by Edizioni Punctum, now in the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library
Just announced by the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Yale University that the Indie Photobook Library (iPL) has been just incorporated into their collection. The collection includes more than 2,000 photobooks from around the world along with related ephemera, archives of the iPL’s history, and Larissa Leclair’s personal collection related to self-publishing. The iPL had focused on self-published photobooks, imprints independently published and distributed, photography exhibition catalogs, print-on-demand photobooks, artists’ books, zines, photobooks printed on newsprint, limited edition photobooks, non-English language photography books, and more. This collection covers the period of indie photobooks starting in 2008 through 2016. These volumes build on an already great strength of this library and will surely be used extensively by scholars and students at Yale and beyond for a long time.
In conjunction with this change, the iPL will cease operations and no longer be accepting any more book submissions.
