I was happy to receive the following letter from Larissa LeClair, of the Indie Photobook Library (which collected a copy of Skeleton in the Closet):
It is an honor to announce that the Indie Photobook Library has been placed at the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Yale University. The collection would not be what it is today without all of you self-publishers and independent presses. Collectively we have given this platform of expression a voice and shaped contemporary photobook publishing and subsequently history in our own way. Your role will now live on at Beinecke. Update your CV’s!
Thus the iPL is permanently closed to submissions. Yet, I will continue to advocate on behalf of self-publishers from around the world by directly consulting with libraries and museums on their acquisitions.
I look forward to hearing about your books in all stages of the process!
Congratulations and continue to shape your own history!
Founder, Indie Photobook Library
