LePhotobookFest is a 3 days event with a focus on the photobook, from Friday 15 to Sunday 17 November 2013 in Paris. Launched by the Paris Photobook Club, this first edition mainly supports the young publishing scene with independent publishing houses as well as self-published and DIY books.
Le PhotobookFest is hosted at L’Ancienne Imprimerie/Picture Tank and Le bar Floréal. Those venues are located in the neighborhood of Belleville, home to one of Paris’s lively Chinatowns, a burgeoning artist quarter and a dizzying array of cultures.
Something awesome is coming to Paris this November! It involves books, photography, and a whole bunch of great folks, and no it isn’t Paris Photo or Offprint Paris. There will be more details soon from the Photobook Club Paris and other communities, but until then, let me know if you are going to be in town!
