PhotoBook Journal – Issue #17


Welcome to our 17th Issue •

Regretfully in the United States we still need to deal with the Administration’s mis-management of the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result this continuing pandemic has ravaged and impacted art schools, publishers, book-printers, artist & photographers, book-stores, galleries, big and small, and in many ways impacted just about every-one in between.

This month we offer a broad range of artist and photo book reviews for your consideration and all of which need your support. Buy and enjoy one of these or one of the many other creative endeavors being published today, whether directly from a self-published artist, your favorite book store or a supporting gallery. We need to continue supporting our vibrant artistic and creative community through these troubling times.

Please stay healthy and safe.
