International Photobook Dummy Award 2013

The photobook dummy has been gaining popularity for a wee while now which is great to see. The dummy in it’s own right is an interesting object or piece of ephemera, a stage in production yet a stage in itself but I have also enjoyed the openness with which people are sharing dummy’s and letting others in to the process of bookmaking. And so I am keen to share the Fotobook Festival’s Dummy Award here…
