The project of this book, co-sponsored by the ICP (International Center of Photography, New York), the "Photobooks" Facebook group and the Tokyo Institute of Photography, was to ask 10 people who are authorities in the photobook genre to select each 10 American photobooks published after 1987.
The result is a rich catalogue of photobooks, some staples, some far less known, with each writer offering his point of view on the state of the american photobook and the reasons for his selection. Of course, a rich iconography documenting each book selected is included.
A beautiful little reference book that will offer everyone some new perspectives and great discoveries. Texts are in English and Japanese.
The 10 curators are : David Levi Strauss, Tony White, Miwa Susuda, Ken Schles, Evan Mirapaul, Andrew Roth, Bernard Yenelouis, Michael Saur, Bryan Formhals and William E. Jones.
Please note we are also offering the second project by "10x10 Photobooks", released in September 2014 : "10x10 Japanese Photobooks" (see "Suggestions" tab).
