OK, so here are a few links of some more small publishers suggested by lots of people - thank you so much for your ideas. So many, so many, some are more affordable than others.
Have a flick through the links below and see what is on offer - there is some fabulous stuff out there.
More self-publishing, but here is a taster of The Photobook Show in Brighton next week.
Also on self-publishing, here is ABC., the Artists' Boooks Cooperative.
This is where you find things such as Mariken Wessels: Queen Ann. P.S. Belly cut off
which is where the above picture is from. Here's Joerg Colberg's review of the book
And here is Jeffrey Ladd's review.
Jeffrey runs Errata Editions which reprints old classics - part of the historical rediscovery of the photobook that the Parr/Badger Histories crystallised. More histories of Dutch/Mexican/Spanish/German photobooks are in the works as we speak and Parr is doing a 3rd Photobook History volume which has to be good news.
For more on Japanese photography and photobooks, see Microcord, Japan Exposures and the Ivan Vartanian book on Japanese Photobooks of the 60s and 70s. Also note that The Photographers Gallery will be having show of 150 Japanese photobooks from the last year. It's in May 2012. It's a kind of bookshow/exhibition. Get your white gloves out. No kidding.
For many, many more small publishers go to last year's Amsterdam Art Book Fair.
