The third volume in an authoritative and comprehensive series, The Photobook: A History volume III provides a unique
perspective on the story of contemporary photography through the genre of the photobook. Continuing in the vein of the
first two volumes, Volume III is a study of the major trends and movements that have shaped the photobook genre globally
since the birth of photography in the early nineteenth century. Volume III pays particular attention to photobooks
published after World War II, covering contemporary themes of modern life, from diaristic photography of place and
people to twentieth‐century propaganda books and some of the finest works to emerge from the recent
self‐publishing boom. The Photobook volumes represent a valuable catalogue of rare and important photobooks, and
since Phaidon published Volume I in 2004, are now regarded by academics, students and photobook bibliophiles as the
definitive works on this subject.
