handmade photography books


Would you like to submit a book or book idea?

We are currently accepting proposals for books to become part of Dust Collective.

Dust Collective is made up of talented, self-motivated photographers, who focus time in their studio practice on the production of handmade books. 

Please to take a look at the books in our book store to get a feel for the aesthetic we promote.
Many books explore new approaches to traditional photography and bookmaking methods. 
The imagery highlights themes of time, weather, nature, space, and the history of photography

There are two methods for project submissions.

Option A: Send completed handmade book, and I will market and sell it. Artist receives 50% of the profits. This is an option for artists who already employ bookmaking in their studio practice. Example

Option B: Send image files, and I will design and make your book. Specifics such as edition size, price, and design will vary between projects, and will be decided in conversation with the artist. The artist receives one copy of the book, and 15% of the proceeds. This is a good option for artists who do not have access to printing facilities, or are unfamiliar with bookmaking techniques. Example

I am looking for books that are available in a limited edition (under 100).

Send a note about the project, and a couple of images to Emily at dust.collective.books@gmail.com
