La Fabrica and Actes Sud are two European publishers whose titles aren’t widely distributed in the UK. We’d like to order from them directly but it would be helpful to get feedback from customers on how much interest there would be.
La Fabrica titles include a selection of Robert Mapplethorpe’s work chosen by Pedro Almodovar and work by Andres Serrano, Paul Graham and Eugene Smith as well as the Photobolsillo series on individual photographers (mostly Spanish) that are very good value – similar to Thames & Hudson’s Photofile series.
Actes Sud’s new titles include work by Joel-Peter Witkin and the wonderful Finnish photographer Pentti Sammallahti. They also have Photo Poches, a much more extensive series of introductions to individual photographers than the Photo File series.
