Photo Books

Photo books are an important aspect of photography, you should always seek them out and buy them - there is an ever growing stack here in the studio that covers 100 years of photography. These treasured publications have artistic value and historic as they are records of events and times past. They show us how we lived and can often advise us on how not to live in the future. Photography books are also a powerful source of inspiration and long, careful studies should be enjoyed regularly. Publishing your own picture books is something I encourage too, it isn't difficult, simple software is enough as the actual magic is in the way you create the final PDF, and even that's an easy task. Listed below are the details and Links for photobooks by David Cross published by Document Now as well as an exhibition list. From time to time certain books are published in small A5 format in limited print runs so as to make the work available, these will be featured in our Print Store.
