World Photo Book Day 2015

World Photo Book Day is October 14th. This date marks the anniversary of the purchase by the British Museum of the first known photobook: Photographs of British algae. Cyanotype impressions, by Anna Atkins. This first copy now resides in the British Library.

We’d love everyone to celebrate it and join this global event by organising an action related to photobooks in Perth. Please share your activities on social media using the hashtag #PhotoBookDay, it will be the best way for everyone in your local community to reach your activity.


Organise! Participate! Celebrate! The World Photobook Day has been set up as a collaboration between the organisers of Photobook Club Madrid and Matt Johnston. Celebrating the photobook – born in 1843.
