In their 1969 collaboration photographer Jean Clemmer and designer Paco Rabanne created one of the iconic works of 60s fashion photography. The 1969 original was reprinted in 2002 and reprised in the 2010 exhibition, 'Canned Candies: The Nudes of Jean Clemmer' at Flash Project in London.

From 2013 Guggenheim Fellowship recipient Valerio Spada, a signed first printing of his 2011 instant classic, Gomorrah Girl. And, to compliment it, a signed copy of Raised by Wolves, Jim Goldberg's amazing 1995 book that serves as a clear model Spada's approach of weaving a compelling narrative from allusive imagery and documentary evidence.

 Interview with the Artist
Fritz Liedtke: Astra Velum

In the past if one wanted to publish a book it was necessary to work with a publisher. While traditional publishing may still have its advantages, many photographers today are opting to self-publish their own photobooks. It can be a difficult process, but one of the payoffs of self-publishing is the complete control the photographer has over the final book. This is best showcased in the handmade artist book. One finely crafted handmade artist book is Fritz Liedtke's Astra Velum. In Liedtke's words his series Astra Velum "explores the beauty of flawed human skin, with its freckles and scars, overlaid upon us like a thin veil of stars."

John Schabel: Passengers

"While documenting and conveying the complex emotional and psychological effects of travel is particularly challenging, it is not impossible. John Schabel's evocative new book, Passengers, collects a series of portraits of people shot through the windows of airplanes waiting to take off on the runway." — from Adam Bell's review of Passengers by John Schabel

Walker Evans: American Photographs

"The 2012 Seventy-Fifth Anniversary edition of American Photographs closely follows the 1938 first edition, from its cover, size, and paper to the photographic edit, print tone, and text. The book is a testament to the benefits of fine craftsmanship — just as was the original — and the MOMA has the money to devote to quality while still pricing the book low enough so that a younger generation of photography lovers can afford the luxury." — from Alexandra Huddleston's review of American Photographs by Walker Evans

Leigh Ledare: <em>Leigh Ledare, Et Al</em> Leigh Ledare, Et Al

"If there are any taboos left in photography, then Seattle-born photographer Leigh Ledare (born 1976) is out to break them. Ledare made an instant splash with his extraordinary 2008 book Pretend You're Actually Alive, in which he documented his mother having sex with her lovers and posing solo or with her son. Genuinely and unabashedly shocking, this volume took the Larry Clark school of candor and explicitness to new heights (Ledare worked for a while as Clark's assistant), and now sells for large sums second-hand. This second monograph gathers selections from this previous volume, alongside new works, including a commission to make erotic photographs for an admirer (who remains anonymous) during a week-long residence at the subject's home." —the publisher READ MORE
