  1. Hi,
    I was looking for such a list as yours! to look for photobooks to add to the catalog of my bookshop L’ascenceur Vegetal,
    I thank you very much for putting together all that info. But I’ve noticed a few broken links while trying them…
    If you have the opportunity and the time to edit them, here’s the list of corrections:
    – Fail : no longer exists, try
    – badweatherpress went out of business apparently …
    – pelitiassociati … no idea !!
    – pondpress : ??
    – Quantuck Lane Press : no idea !!
    – scalo : no idea !!
    – germanartbooks : no idea !!
    – Umbrage Editions : out of business ?

    Hope this helps …

    • Hi Regis,

      Reply very long overdue – keeping this list as well as the other Resource pages updated has been a great challenge; Indie publishers (as well as established ones) quickly coming and going. That said, with the recent implementation of a magazine format we have recruited a Resource Manager and are in the process of obtaining a couple of Interns to address updating the various Resource pages, including this one. Thank you for your patience.
