PhotoBook Journal – Issue #18

Welcome to our 18th Issue •

We are featuring a diverse selection of photobooks in this issue. We hope you find some creative inspiration and some books that you might want to add to your collection. With the Covid-19 pandemic still unabated here in the US and looming in other countries, there are many artists, photographers, galleries, indie bookstores and book publishers who could use your support by your purchase of one of their books.

Please stay healthy and safe.
