Pierre is having his own exhibition of drawings at Spiazzi, curated by Elena Xausa and Tankboys.
the opening : Tuesday, March the 2nd 2010, 7 PM Campo San Martino (Arsenale’s gate), Castello 3865, Venezia
We were supposed to go there but we couldn’t because of the storm in France. No new books from Venice.
I have received Donovan Wylie’s British Watchtowers twice, so I’d like to trade my extra copy.
Does anyone would like to do a book swap with me ? I’m sure no-one wants me to send it back to the merchant !?!?
You have an extra book you’d like to send me, and receive this one ?
Please send me your proposition to lvecten (at) gmail.com before friday evening, of course the new book will be shown here !
This is the 3rd book of my yesterday’s boughts at Comptoir de l’Image (44 rue de Sévigné 75003 Paris). 65 euros ; it was published by Doubleday in 1989.
Do I have to explain why i bought an Eggleston book ?
This one was bought at Comptoir de l’Image (44 rue de Sévigné 75003 Paris) too.
85 euros ; it was published by Aperture in 1988.
These are pictures taken in The Pawnee National Grasslands reserve. To me it’s all about love : for the landscape, the nature, and his wife
My project is to buy all the Robert Adams books, good idea, right ?
A saturday walk in Paris, leads us to Comptoir de l’Image, 44 rue de Sévigné 75003.
Impossible to look for a book, but you always find books.
My selection for today starts with this book. Of course i had heard about it, but was not really interested in getting it until i saw it. This one cost me 45 euros.
Here’s Errata Editions’s website.
This book presents the Walker Evans’ book, which is good because i don’t think i’ll be able to own it,
and it comes with 2 essays about it (Lincoln Kirstein and John T. Hill)
This is a great idea, and will help me in “photo history” knowledge
I now have to look for the other Books on books (a total of 8 is already published)
Here is the package i received today. My order from PP + a fanzine they gave me !
Here is the blog for Preston is my Paris Publishing, These are small publishing.
I bought this small editions for a total of £11.
The first one is a fanzine Adam (Murray) and Robert (Parkinson) make on a monthly basis about their city : Preston, and i live in Paris.
This reminds me the fanzine we used to do with my friends back in the 90’s : Necklace’s girls, about music.
Anyway, I love the fanzine codes : the use of real prints, black and white xerox, and NO COMPUTER.
This is a mini book that folds to a poster (A3)
And my favorite… the one that decided my order :
This is from negatives bought on a market, and it’s full of nice surprises.
I love the glassine envelope, really works with this perticular project.
I don’t recognize anyone i know there. Do You ?
self-published (via Extant Books), bought on Noah’s website $20 (+$10 shipping)
This is a very nice one, i love the printing, and the choice of paper that goes really well with the pictures.
Pictures are simple, clear and sharp.
and i love signed books ! but you already knew !!!

I collect Blind Spot, since its 6th issue. This is a must-buy, and it’s quite difficult to find it here, in Paris.
I bought it at Agora Presse, in Le Marais for 34 euros (US price is $18 = 13 euros)
This issue is a little different, showing more photographers than usual.

There was a Robert Adams exhibition, 2 years ago at Fondation Cartier, here in Paris.
I already have 2 books of him, but until now never owned a signed one !
I like his pictures for being simple, black and white, strong. Peaceful. Natural.
self-published, edited at 30 copies,
bought 8 euros through Laurent Champoussin’s website
I have published Laurent Champoussin on LOZ
This is a nice little book, very nice packed
bought £18 through Stephen Gill’s shop here
Signed by artist,
As many people i’m a big fan of Gill’s work, so I try to collect as many books as i can.
This is my 6th one.
This one presents different work, but with something in common : British objects and scenes.
This book was sent to me by Massimo Sordi for a book swap.
It shows 22 photographers, it is the catalogue for the exhibition shown at SIFEST 2009
