We were very grateful to Sebastiaan Hanekroot at Colour & Books for so inventively executing the production of our recent 10×10 Japanese Photobooks publication. Sebastian’s recent blog post, A Case in Binding, discusses the production challenges in realizing the elaborate French fold binding and associated gatefolds that designer Sybren Kuiper conceived for our book.

Sebastiaan’s ability to overcome what other book producers would see as obstacles, makes him stand out in the field.

Dankjewel Sebastiaan for such amazing work!

Saturday, November 22, 2014

Photo books are now recognized as a separate art form, a subgenre of the larger universe of photography, and their importance has prompted a recent spate of books about photo books. “10×10 Japanese Photobooks” (10×10 Photobooks, 248 pages, $125) is a sushi counter of information about the Japanese photo books published in the last 60 years: 20 international specialists each highlight 10 titles, one of which is then given an expanded treatment—including enough pictures to give a sense of what the work is actually like. Photo books have been an important aspect of Japanese culture since the end of World War II, documenting the country’s seismic social transformations, and most of the country’s best known photographers— Daido Moriyama, Nobuyoshi Araki, Eikoh Hosoe, Hiroshi Sugimoto —are represented. The advantage of this extensive listing is that many little known artists are also on view. The present book is the second in the “10×10” series; it follows one on America photo books and more are planned.

—Mr. Meyers writes on photography for The Wall Street Journal.
