Hatje Cantz Autumn Catalogue - 10 August 2012

We've just received the Hatje Cantz autumn catalogue and there's some great new stuff coming out so I thought it would be good to give you a preview.  I'm very excited about new titles by Nadav Kander and by Tom Hunter, whose work should at last  be getting the quality of reproduction in book form that it deserves.  We don't have the titles uploaded to our website yet but we'll be doing everything we can to get signed copies of at least these two.  Do let us know if you're interested.

Martin Parr signing report - 07 August 2012

We had a great evening with Martin Parr yesterday.  See here for photos of the event.  He was in very good form and spent an hour with us, talking about his books and taking time to speak individually to the many people who wanted books signed.  He spoke about future projects and revealed there would be a volume 3 to The Photobook: a History and a book of his photographs of Scotland, with particular reference to our islands - apparently he’s visited practically every one that’s inhabited.  We have more signed copies of many of his books which you can either order from us online or by email or phone as usual, or you can get them at our Pop Up Shop at Stills which runs to 28 August.
