Fotobücher: Kunst zum Blättern

Very nice little book with open binding and wooden covers, laser engraved.
The book shows a selection of international photobooks from the last decades, with a focus on the photobook as an art object and a storytelling medium. The interaction between photography, material, binding, form, and format offers many possibilities for experimentation and demonstrates the potential of the photobook as an artistic medium unto itself.
The book was published in conjunction with the exhibition Photobooks. Art Page by Page, co-curated by Calin Kruse / dienacht Publishing for the GRASSI Museum of Applied Arts in Leipzig, Germany.
