Exploring self-published photo books: InDesign Magazine article

My friends at InDesign Magazine asked me to explore self-published photography books for the June 2016 issue. In my article Manual Exposure: Eye-Opening Self-Published Photography Books I write about photography books from four countries, focusing on the book designers and their creative approaches.

Each book had its own interesting design features such as multiple page sizes and paper stocks, loose inserts, innovative binding, or no binding at all. As I write in the article, the book designers “found ways to enhance their narratives through thoughtful and sometimes unorthodox design choices, and by close collaboration with book designers and writers.”
