Ideas Over Easy: The Photobook

Ideas Over Easy

This Event has been rescheduled to April 16 due to snow.

Ideas Over Easy is ASMPDC’s continuing series of informal get-togethers to catch up and talk about issues we all share.

This month’s program is all about the photobook. Larissa Leclair from the Indie Photobook Library will bring a selection of the collection for us to look at, be inspired by and ask questions about. It’ll be like a book club but without the homework!

About the Indie Photobook Library:
Founded by Larissa Leclair in 2010, the Indie Photobook Library is an archive of self-published and indie published photobooks. This includes DIY, photobooks independently published and distributed, photography exhibition catalogs, print-on-demand photobooks, artist books, zines, photobooks printed on newsprint, limited edition photobooks, and non-English language photography books, etc. The iPL promotes and showcases the books in the collection through international pop-up and feature-length exhibitions, articles, conferences, guest lectures, and also preserves them as a non-circulating public library. Having a specific collection dedicated to this contemporary movement in publishing allows for the development of future discourse on trends in self-publishing, the ability to reflect on and compare books in the collection, and for scholarly research to be conducted years, decades, and centuries to come.
