PHOTOBOOKS! Best Books of 2008 on

Photo-Eye has posted their annual “Best Of” compilation as determined by noted individuals in our field. Check it out here. And clear space on your shelves… I’m flying home from PhotoLA today with many new volumes to add to my library, mostly books on history or books on books… things at Marcus Schaden’s booth like Ken Sches’ A New History of Photography: The World Outside and the Pictures In Our Heads, and the reprints of historic volumes like those published by Errata Editions “Books on Books #1-4” (such a pleasure to meet Marcus, Ken and Jeffrey Ladd) an obsession of mine to be sure. David Maisel’s Library of Dust (what a pleasure to hear David talking about bringing the body of work to the publication in his conversation with Charlotte Cotton at PhotoLA). I captured many conversations about books with artists Arthur Tress, Arthur Ollman, Maya Ishiwata from Nazraeli Press and more with my trusty Flip Video… The Photobook is alive and well…and in my suitcase this morning…
