Martin Parr’s Best Books of the Decade – copy number 30/30
This exclusive book was first published on the occasion of the exhibition ‘Photobooks: Martin Parr’s Best Books of the Decade’, curated by Martin Parr at the National Photographic Archive, Dublin, Ireland – in the framework of PhotoIreland Festival 2011. The publication includes Martin Parr’s comments on each book, together with illustrations and ‘Author’s notes’. These are mostly unpublished texts by the photographers, publishers and curators of the works – personal statements on the process and raison d’être of each book.
On show at the PARRBOOKS exhibition during the Fotobook Kassel 2015.
We are releasing selected copies of the special collectors edition, signed and numbered, to support The Library Project. None of these copies have a bookcase, and are presented as they were sold in 2011.
Please note: Local pick-up of orders is available from
The Library Project at 4 Temple Bar, Dublin 2.
