Abstract:

We live in the golden age of the photography book. Since the early 1990's, the number of photography-book publishers has continued to grow while technological developments have placed more tools for bookmaking directly in the hands of photographers. For many, the photography book is a primary means of expression, whether on a personal or professional level. Yet few have more than a limited grasp of the component parts of a book, an understanding of what they want to express, or the know-how to get a book published.

Publish Your Photography Book is the first book to demystify the process of producing and publishing a book of photographs. Industry insiders Darius D. Himes and Mary Virginia Swanson survey the current landscape of photography-book publishing and point out the many avenues to pursue and pitfalls to avoid. This expert guide is organized in six sections: the rich history of the photobook, an overview of the publishing industry, an intimate look at the process of making a book, a close review of how to market a photography book, a case-studies section built around discussions and interviews with published photographers, and a final section presenting a wealth of resources and information to aid in the understanding of the publishing world. Publish Your Photography Book also includes a number of additional interviews and contributions from industry professionals, including artists, publishers, designers, packagers, editors, and other industry experts who openly share their publishing experiences. --Book Jacket.
