PhotoBook Journal – Issue #31

Welcome to our 31st Issue •

We are in the midst of the Fall releases and there is still some logistical chaos here in the U.S., with some publisher (& author/photographer) angst. Regretfully all of this is probably going to lead to some price increases for photobooks (actually all books of every kind and sort).

For October we provide a diverse range of photographic book reviews, perhaps a few as potential end of the year gifts. Meanwhile everyone is preparing their list of interesting photobooks for the end of the year. I know we are working on one.
