This inventive Japanese manga design-inspired bilingual (Japanese-English) publication comes with a special newsprint insert designed by Pierre Le Hors and Tuomas Korpijaakko. As a comprehensive overview of the 10×10 American Photobooks project, it presents illustrated selection lists from all the specialists, along with essays on American photobook culture by noted artists, writers, publishers, curators and bibliophiles.

2 Self Publish, Be Happy pamphlets 

Self Publish, Be Happy produced two special edition pamphlets for 10×10 American Photobooks, featuring newly commissioned work by Jason Fulford, Anouk Kruithof, Hillery Bosworth and Chris Mills. Inspired by the themes of 10×10, the pamphlets explore the character of the book collector: a figure of manias, fetishes and mysteries.

SPBH Pamphlet, edited by Nicholas Muellner, is a platform for placing contemporary writing and photography in conver­sation. Each single-sheet publication features a new photographic work by an artist and a short original text by a contemporary author. These two forces neither illustrate nor explain one another. They talk to each other through the thickness of the page.

Both pamphlets are available during the Tokyo run of the reading room from 11 September – 6 October 2013.
