You've just published a photobook; now what? The answer: make sure it is accessible in public collections. Join Leclair, Hibben, and Grimm in a discussion on collecting photobooks from the perspective of an independent collector, special collections archivist and curator, and academic art librarian. They will comment on how collecting differs from the circulating stacks of libraries versus special collections; how the rise of self-published photobooks is changing the way institutions acquire new titles for their collections; how collection stewards find and purchase photobooks being published today; how artists can establish relationships with collections; and much more!
