Through serendipity I recently came to know of and receive a review copy of FineBooks & Collections, a quarterly published by Journalistic, Inc. out of their Chapel Hill, NC offices. As you might imagine the magazine reports on all things related to “Fine” Books, Manuscripts, and other published empheria that might end up in a collection.

The events that led to my obtaining a review copy of FineBooks was a survey article being prepared about photobooks, titled Photography in Motion, Collecting Photobooks is a way of Collecting Change by Andrea Volpe. One of the subjects that Volpe discussed was Yale’s Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library acquisition/donation of the Indie Photobook Library develop by Larissa Leclair (we reported on this earlier). To illustrate the indie type of phtotobooks in Leclair’s collection, FineBooks wanted to use the cover of my photobook Ciociaria, published by Edizioni Punctum that was included in the Yale acquisition.

This is not a book review, but it places my photobook alongside some wonderful photographic company; Alvin Langdon Coburn, Lewis Hine, Danny Lyons, Richard Avedon and Gary Winogrand. Nevertheless, it is very nice to become a poster child for Indie photobooks!

Other articles in this magazine of note for photographers and book makers: Not the End for Endpapers, a short interview of Daile Kaplan who is the head of photography at the Swann Auction Galleries and her Pop Photographica collection, a review of a Henry Thoreau exhibition that includes an interesting daguerreotype of him and her In View column (The Sum of its Parts) by Volpe.

Cheers!
