To celebrate World Book Night 2019 the Royal Photographic Society,
Yorkshire Region will be hosting the Festival of the Photo Book.
To make this work we need you to lend us your precious photo book, so
that it can be shared with other people, in controlled conditions.
The books will be displayed at Swinton Library and several of our
members will be on duty for the whole event to ensure the books are
treated with care.
The festival will comprise the Photobook Display, along with a running
a photographic exhibition on Used Bookstores by John Pyatt FRPS, and a
resource table for making handmade books.
It is intended that this will be a unique opportunity to network with
others who are working with this in this exciting media, and discuss
techniques.
For details of how and when to enter your book please send your
email address to yorkshirechair@rps.org
