THE PHOTO BOOK AS OBJECT


Since NW Gallery opened in 2017 almost all our curated exhibitions has involved and displayed the book based on photography as an object in one or another form:

As a sketch, a process wall, a dummy or the unique artist book.


In the gallery we have a beautiful collection of photographic artist books, signed and editioned by the artists.


Some of the books may be unique because the artist has put a personal bless on each book or the books have  handmade elemenst. The artist book is often and bookbinded by hand by the artist or hand crafted by a professional bookbinder.


An artist book is a piece of art in itself and has exclusive collectional value if it is an original or small editioned.

The content of a photo artist book...


... of images, drawings, collages, text and the materials of fabric, paper and covers are especially chosen to fullfill and support the story and the tactile feeling of the book.
