Summary
"Photographers have been making photobooks--bound collections of their works--ever since the birth of photography in the early nineteenth century ... This publication tells the story of photography via the history of the photobook, revealing the ways in which photographers have influenced each other's work through their books, and consequently how their use of photography has developed over time ... The first of two extensive volumes, this publication explores more than 200 photobooks through 750 colour illustations, detailed captions, and an illuminating text written by the photographer"--Dust jacket.
