Self Publish Be Happy: A DIY Photobook Manual and Manifesto

Self Publish Be Happy: A DIY Photobook Manual and Manifesto. An economic and cultural revolution has shaken the photobook world in the last five years: self-publishing. An army of photographers operating as publishers has had an instrumental role in today’s photobook renaissance. This book offers a do-it-yourself manual and a survey of key examples of self-published success stories. As well as being a self-publishing manifesto it has a list of resources.

The manual portion of this volume offers insight, advice, and rudimentary how-tos for the photographer interested in self-publishing. The survey offers an overview of the contemporary self-publishing landscape. Each case study illustrates a particular theme and genre of self-publishing (such as diary, documentary, or conceptual object). These are all accompanied by personal testimonies from the artists who created them.

Self Publish, Be Happy

Author Bruno Ceschel, founder of the Self Publish, Be Happy organization, provides a rallying cry for all those involved in the contemporary photobook revolution. This is a moment in which the photobook, in all its infinitesimal manifestations, has never before been so omnipresent in our cultural landscape. Nor so critical to the photographer’s practice.
