Library of Fine Arts Faculty in Madrid accepts donations

As you may know, we celebrate the purchase by the British Museum of Anna Atkins’ book, 172 years ago. For the second year we proposed libraries to include in their archives self-published photoooks and photozines. For the second year, too, the first library to accept this proposal is Biblioteca de la Facultad de Bellas Artes de la UCM, in Madrid. And here is what they have to say about that:

Como en anteriores celebraciones del Día Internacional del Fotolibro animamos a todo el mundo a que done fotolibros a una biblioteca. Para la Biblioteca de la Facultad de Bellas Artes los fotolibros cuentan mucho. Aquí tienen un espacio dedicado para que se puedan conservar y para que puedan ser consultados. Además, dedicamos una parte del presupuesto a adquirirlos y mucho amor y dedicación bibliotecarios para catalogarlos y describirlos.

These were the publications they received last year:

It can be one of the photobooks selected and displayed by the members of the Library or one you take from home. All of them with be shown through an opaque projector (whatever it is). Here’s Madrid calling, and they are also accepting donations: […]
