Collectible photobooks: old classics & rarities

These sold out and hard to find photobooks have moved in the rare book category, often sought after by the collectors.

These books can be great classics of the photobook that we are offering on the second-hand market; they can be 10, 20, 50 years old or more... books by the likes of William Klein, Paul Strand, Diane Arbus or Todd Hido.

But these books can also be more recent titles, often new or as new, that are out of print by the publisher (or by the self-published artist) but that we still have in stock, usually one copy, sometimes more... books by the likes of Ren Hang, Alejandro Cartagena, Carolyn Drake or Eamonn Doyle.

Please note : if you are looking for a specific book that we have listed here on this website but that appears as sold out, please feel free to contact us as we sometimes stumble upon forgotten copies that we do not systematically or immediately list back on the website :-)
