Brexit is beginning to bite and it is having an effect on the photobook market. These are a few comments posted on Facebook the other day about the way in which the UK (or Great Britain and Northern Ireland to be more accurate - Northern Ireland is not subject to the same kinds of problems I think. I don't know, but I think) is becoming even more of an isolated island than it was before. Tragically, I think that effect will be amplified by the ending of the Erasmus programmes, by the ending of particular kinds of funding, by the increased bureaucracies that are only just beginning to emerge (but were entirely predictable and predicted).
What is interesting is how people are thinking about workarounds. Ana Casas Broda of Hydra has been thinking about this for a long time I know (think of shipping charges from Mexico, where she is based, to Europe), as is anyone in Europe who has tried to buy a book from the US.

These are some of the problems for buying books from the UK, or selling them to the UK.
