Welcome to our Eighth Issue! •
Here in the States we just celebrated our Thanksgiving Holiday this last weekend, which in addition to the annual tradition of eating too much (or is that my tradition?), it’s a time to give Thanks. Thus a very BIG Thank You for your support for this new magazine endeavor and your continuing interest in all the creative photobooks that we feature.
We will be sharing our annual list of Interesting Photobooks within the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned for that announcement.
The entire PhotoBook Journal staff wishes each of you a wonderful and very creative December holiday season.
Cheers & Enjoy!
