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
Generally: - 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.com (third-party sellers, used or new, excluded), or actual (chain) book shop - 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
