Swiss Photobooks: 1927 to Present
My interest in photography has grown recently and i’ve been on the prowl to find quality books on the subject. One of my latest additions and the one i’m most excited about traces the history of the Swiss Photobook. Compiled by the Swiss Photographic Foundation (Fotostiftung Schweiz) and published by Lars Mueller, Swiss Photobooks from 1927 to the Present highlights classic and influential titles that exlemplify the era. Weighing in at 7.5 pounds, the massive visual compendium features lush spreads, in-depth summaries, an extensive bibliography and introduces over 60 pieces. A pleasure to look at and an engaging read, this volume is a well-crafted ode to the distinct character of the Swiss Photobook.
