One Year For Japan

Just published and a perfect gift for Christmas is this beautifully designed calendar from LozenUp. As well as being a thing of beauty it is a gift that will keep on giving as 100% of profits raised will be donated to the Japanese Red Cross. I've already ordered 2!

New Book: Abstract Polaroids

abstract polaroid 15

Doubleplusgood Books is pleased to announce the release of a brand new book from photographer Stuart Woodman entitled Abstract Polaroids. It is a 12 page, full colour mini-book, produced in a hand numbered limited edition of 100 and is available to buy over at the Doubleplusgood Bookshop for £4.50 + P&P.

Abstract Polaroids is the fourth title to be published by Doubleplusgood Books and the second by artist Stuart Woodman. Following on from his acclaimed debut Now We Are 30, Woodman's latest book presents us with a collection of abstract images that explore the fundamental elements of photographic reproduction: light, chemistry and technology.

With echoes of Rothko's paintings and Wolfgang Tillmans experiments in abstract photography this book is small, but perfectly formed. Printed lithographically and with a machine varnish to enhance the look and feel of the images, this little gem has been lovingly designed by the talented chaps at A-Side in Cornwall.

If you attended PiY in Paris last weekend you will have had a sneak preview of the book as part of Laurence Vecten's curated selection of this years best self-published photobooks. Sadly I wasn't able to be there in person, but photos of the event now in its second year look like it was once again a rip-roaring success!

Art-Athina and New York Photo Festival

Yet more exciting book events! May is proving to be a fruitful month for the photobook...

First up is Art-Athina, the International Contemporary Art Fair of Athens - now in its 17th year. OMMU Distribution will be featuring all Doubleplusgood Books titles at the fair amongst a selection of monographs, exhibition catalogues, periodical editions, self-published items, artist books & zines. The fair opens today and runs until Sunday.

Also opening today and running til Sunday is the New York Photo Festival where the Indie Photobook Library will be showing their entire collection (which includes all the books we've published so far) at the Tobacco Warehouse in DUMBO, NYC.

If you're in either Athens or NYC both look like they'd be well worth a visit.

Le Bal, this weekend

my book Now We Are 30 is being featured this weekend in an event at Le Bal in Paris as part of a selection of photobooks curated by PIY and Le Garage. If you are in the city it should be well worth a look - Le Bal is such a great gallery and the bookshop and cafe are pretty awesome too.
