Volume 1 of a comprehensive illustrated history of the photobook, featuring over 200 photobooks dating from the 19th century to the radical Japanese photobooks of the 1960s and 70s. It includes well-known publications such as Walker Evans’ American Photographs (1938), alongside lesser-known but significant works such as Kikuji Kawada’s The Map (1965). Offering a fresh approach to photographic history, it focuses on the development of photography in its published form and covers key artistic movements and epochs.The broadly thematic and chronological structure features an introductory essay followed by detailed captions alongside images of the photobook covers and spreads with each chapter, which provide the central means of telling the history of the photobook.
