This date is a direct homage to the first photobook known: Photographs of British algae. Cyanotype impressions of Anna Atkins. Since we do not know the date of publication, we have taken the date of entry in the catalog the copies for the British Library.
This year marks the 170th anniversary of that date and we’d love you to join this celebration and turn that day into a global event organizing an event related to the Photobook in your respective cities. (The news continues here).
We didn't go to Madrid, and we couldn't go to the activity the Photobook Club Barcelona did the day before at the "Observatorio" (photographs here), but we did a small chat to some master students at La Massana school of Art and Design. We talked about the photozines we published on Bad Weather and we add other phtozines from the Fanzinepaper collection.

If you want to keep celebrating the #photobookday you can buy our latest photozine "Capitalismo Barbarie", a one year work from Carles Palacio shooting social movements and manifestations in Barcelona and Girona.
