List of Libraries accepting donations for World PhotoBook Day 2014

171 years ago, Anna Atkins was so generous to take to the British Museum Library a copy of her book of cyanotypes. In this spirit we proposed libraries to accept self-published photobooks and photozines and to record them with the same date, October 14th.

We know not every book is accepted by all libraries, so we asked them to write down their special conditions. You can also help us talking to your local public library or schol library and propose them this action. If they accept, please send us a message with their conditions and contact information to info[at]photobookclubmadrid.com.

And here you have the list of Public Libraries and School Libraries that want to participate in this initiative. On the map, look for blue markers. They are sorted by city:

Goa

Goa Center for Alternative Photography

 

Harpenden

Photobook Club’s ‘Natural Collection’

 

Madrid

Facultad de la Facultad de Bellas Artes de la UCM

BlankPaper Escuela

 

Moscow – Москва

The Lumiere Brothers Center for Photography
