Publisher Note

"If the photographic life were a treasure hunt, The Magnum Photobook is a rightfully vaunted treasure chest. Fred Ritchin and Carole Naggar's introduction expanded my understanding of how the photobook, as expressed early and continuously by Magnum photographers, plays a critical role in defining and expressing a photographer's voice beyond the settings of assignment-based work. Then learning about the creation of each book is the richest of rewards, made all the more so by a final section of the book that shows the early iterations of many of the photobooks. This book about books is one that I must have in the library." —Mike Davis, Alexia Tsairis Chair for Documentary Photography, S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, Syracuse University

"Magnum Photobook is essentially a book about books, but look closer and it's so much more than that." —Amateur Photographer

"Beautifully illustrated and informative...a valuable reference." —Library Journal

"A 'greatest hits' of visual storytellers." —Huck, Noora Ismail

"Contextualizes the evolution of the photobook through the lens of Magnum's publications and photographers... An extensive bibliography of 1,000 photobooks refreshed with the perspective and reflection... An illuminating account of the systemic narrative of the photobook... An attestation to the authority and standing the particular medium of the photobook has had in our cultural panorama throughout the twentieth century to contemporary times." —

"A fascinating insight into the evolution of the photo book." —Digital Camera
