Photobook Bristol Dummy and First Book Table

We are delighted to announce the books we’ll be showing at Photobook Bristol’s Dummy and First Book Table. It was with great difficulty that we made this selection. There were fantastic books that weren’t selected, with great images, concepts and designs. Making a photobook really is difficult and the standard of books submitted is proof both of the skills needed to make a great book and also that peak photobook, in terms of quality, not been reached.

There are trade published, self-published, handmade artist’s books and rough dummies covering a range of subjects and approaches. From Matthieu Asselin’s large scale investigation into Monsanto to Mary Hamill’s direct floral renditions of used tampons and Martin Bollati’s ambitious book construction, we recommend you follow the links and discover the work of some of the best books that we have seen this year and beyond.
