This volume 1 of a comprehensive illustrated history of the photobook, featuring over 200 photobooks dating from the 19th century to the radical Japanese photobooks of the 1960s and 70s. It includes well-known publications such as Walker Evans' "American Photographs" (1938), alongside lesser-known but significant works such as Kikuji Kawada's "The Map" (1965). It offers a fresh approach to photographic history, focusing on the development of photography in its published form and covers key artistic movements and epochs. Broadly thematic and chronological in structure, each chapter features an introductory essay followed by detailed captions alongside images of the photobook covers and spreads, which provide the central means of telling the history of the photobook.
