PhotoBook Journal – Issue #30

Every year the Fall release of photobooks by publishers is a big event. They want to have their books ready for the holidays and itching to get on somebody’s Top Ten book list for the year. With the COVID-19 pandemic this Fall’s release is already a bit irregular. Boxes of books are on ships sitting in a port waiting for their turn to be unloaded or worse; the books are still in China or Korea waiting for a container to be filled and then shipped to a publisher’s warehouse.

Once in port, the shipping container may still sit for a while as the number of truck drivers has dramatically decreased (also why the delay in the boats being off-loaded). A photobook logistical nightmare. So please be patient, many of the wonderful books in the various press releases will be available soon or later. This sure makes using local book printers much more tantalizing…
