Bob Books, the leading photobook company in the UK, is launching a touring workshop in September.
The workshops, called Photobook Month, will tour 10 cities all over the UK during September 2011. The workshops will enable photographers and photobook lovers alike to improve their photobook skills and swap knowledge and inspiration with photobook experts. Guest speakers at the events include Julia Boggio, Claire Sloane and Steve Gerrard.
General manager of Bobs Books, Ibyola Nemeth, hopes that the event will help fans to celebrate photobooks. "This is the first UK-wide photobook event. We wanted to celebrate photobooks in their many forms and the best way to do this is to invite photographers and photobook lovers to join us for a month-long celebration of photobooks in September."
Tickets for the event in London are £10, and £5 in every other city. There are only 15 tickets per city though, so book yours now by visiting the Bob Books blog
