The Indie Photobook Library, LBM, and ABC in “A Fair” at the University of Kansas


The University of Kansas department of Design with support from the Hallmark Corporate Foundation presents: “A Fair”

A free, open and public photobook FAIR brimming with contemporary small, large, experimental, raw unfiltered, handmade, and outsourced books that are self-published, DIY, PoD, inkjet, newsprint, offset, in both open and limited editions made by independent local, national, and international publishers, photographers, and artists.

A FAIR, curated by Travis Shaffer, is a glimpse into the the prevalence of the book-form within contemporary ‘photographic’ practice. This exhibition features the works of Alec Soth’s Little Brown Mushroom, a selection by Larissa Leclair of over 150 books from the The Indie Photobook Library and various works by the members of the Artists’ Books Cooperative, including their recent collaborative work titled ‘ABCED’.
