Everyone have his opinion of an event like this, last year we have already a couple of jokes and critics. Not extrange this year we have more of every kind. And for sure there will be more and more, it’s healthy for all the photobookie community, isn’t it?
If fact we had critics, also recommendations, reflections, thinkings, jokes about the prices of some books, about excesive buying, acknowledgements… It’s worthy a selection of them here.
