Book definitions on The Photobook blog

While I was reviewing some recent photobooks, I realized that I have been using some book design and publishing jargon that may not be as well known to photographers and readers of photobooks. I think for many folks, the book printer (and bindery) may be a black box; photographs and essays go in and pretty soon a ton of printed photobooks in cardboard boxes come out the other side. So perhaps a little bit of information to demystify some of the book design and publishing (printing) processes, especially for those like me who are very interested in creating artist books and self-publishing. Thus I initiated a new Reference page on my photobook blog The Photobook to provide definitions and links to sites (usually Wikipedia) that provide even more detail.

So check it out and perhaps it might help you understand some of the things lurking in the publisher’s black box. And if you still have some questions, leave a comment and I will try to answer the best I can.

Cheers!
