Indie Photobook Library

Another great resource to check out is the Indie Photobook Library. Put together by my talented friend and one-time college roommate Larissa Leclair--mentioned more than once here on Tethered--it's an amazing collection of all types of photography publications. From the website:

The Indie Photobook Library (iPL) was founded in 2010 by Larissa Leclair. It is an archive that strives to preserve and showcase self-published photobooks, photobooks independently published and distributed, photography exhibition catalogs, print-on-demand photobooks, artist books, zines, photobooks printed on newsprint, limited edition photobooks, and non-English language photography books to be seen in person through traveling exhibitions and as a non-circulating public library. Having a specific collection dedicated to these kinds of books allows for the development of future discourse on trends in self-publishing, the ability to reflect on and compare books in the collection, and for scholarly research to be conducted in years, decades, and centuries to come.

Upcoming places to see the Indie Photobook Library collection include the Flash Forward Festival (Toronto, October 6-10, 2010) and FotoWeek DC (Washington, DC, November 6-13, 2010).

Thank you as always to Larissa for her ongoing support of my work and for including me on the site. If you'd like to own a copy of Life is a series of small moments seen above (for only $12 I might add) please visit MagCloud here to purchase.

Hi Elizabeth, I stopped by to see what you are up to and came across this post of the Indie photobook library. It looks really interesting and well conceived. I will return to your blog and larissa's when I am a little less sleepy. Welcome back, I hope your summer was enjoyable and fun.
