The Independent Photo Book announces independently published and/or produced photography books or zines, which are not available via Amazon or other standard outlets. The blog's founders and editors are Jörg Colberg and Hester Keijser.
How to submit books/zines
Most important: Submit information FOLLOWING EXISTING POSTS!
General notes: - We only accept announcements about existing print books or zines (strictly no fundraisers) - By "zine" we here mean not regularly published magazines, but rather one-time publications (which are often xeroxed/cheaply printed and stapled, thus resembling a magazine) - There is no selecting, editing and/or curating involved - At the time of the listing, the book/zine has to be available (no "sold out") so people can actually order it online - no repeat announcements or "special offers" or "30% off" sale announcements - we only list books or zines that cannot be bought via Amazon or actual (chain) book shops - specialty/photo shops such as Schaden or Dashwood, of course, are perfectly fine - no Blurb books or MagCloud magazines, since those can be found easily via Blurb's/MagCloud's website - do not send us emails with more than one book/zine per week to list
Submit: Please submit information FOLLOWING EXISTING POSTS. The closer your submission is to its final form, the faster it will appear. Included information needs to contain (do NOT copy and past the following list): - Title of publication (please not all upper caps!) - Name of artist(s) (if applicable) - additional contributors (if applicable) - Number of pages, size (both metric and non-metric) - Edition size (if applicable) - type of printing (offset, digital, ... - if applicable or desired) - Price - Two or three sentence description (strictly not longer)
- one image to post (file size maximum: 200 kB) - Website link to more detailed description/info about the book/zine (the website MUST have some English text; and it MUST be obvious from the site how to order the book) - Web link where the book/zine can be ordered
