If you’re in town for Photo London this weekend, come visit the publishing arm of Photobook Bristol, RRB Publishing in a virtual kind of way.
Sadly we won’t be deep in the bowels of Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall taking part in Offprint, London’s biggest Photobook Event, but you will be able to visit us online at RRB Photobooks.

You can check out our recently published titles such as Post-Script by Laura El-Tantawy, Shenasnameh by Amak Mahmoodian (Co-published with ICVL Studio, , there will be a copy on display at Hurtwood Press stall) and Memento Mori by Peter Mitchell, buy from the amazing range of new and old photobooks with prices to suit everybody, and order tickets for Photobook Bristol.
And between doing all that, we hope you buy lots of books from everybody at Offprint, which is a truly fabulous event.
If you’re not familiar with Peter Mitchell, it’s never too late to start. A stalwart of early British colour documentary in the late 1970s, he is now undergoing a renaissance with a rush of new publications (mostly published by us) and a show at Arles this summer.
For an idea of how important a photographer Peter is, read this review of Peter’s Strangely Familiar on Photo Eye. And this is the introduction to the book. Written by Martin Parr, it explains how Peter Mitchell was responsible for Martin’s conversion to colour.
