We are offering a FREE PDF DOWNLOAD of the
AUSTRALIAN PHOTOBOOK COMPENDIUM V3.
Launched at the Melbourne Art Book Fair in March 2019 this book features:

- 120 publishers
- 40 designers
- 100 portraits of photographers
- photos of 40 photobook events and,
- A library full of photographs of key Australian photobook covers.
“This data and images has been compiled over many years as a result of my interest in the photobook from the historical viewpoint as well as its contemporary phenomenon. I am particularly interested in books where the photograph acts as the principal narrative agent.
Additionally I am also drawn to the haptic experience and design of the book and how it operates as a vehicle for presenting ideas and telling stories.”
From the introduction by Dr Doug Spowart
