--Anonymous photography book publisher
Check out this article on PDN's site about the market for limited edition books. This has been a major topic amongst my friends as of late. Christopher Griffith is embarking on a self published endeavor that is very exciting (check out "Blown") and the work of Adam Weiss is very deserving of a monograph in the near future (check out his portfolio called "Love" on his site). Having self-published my book And No Birds Sang in 2002 and only recently finding mainstream distribution at Photo-Eye I can attest to the long road it takes to get there. The fuel for that journey is conviction and tenacity. I really appreciate Photo-Eye's support and those that have purchased the book off of their site these past two months. Read through the PDN article, hopefully it informs and illuminates the market for self publishing and the rewards and pitfalls of endeavoring to do so.
