POD Books as Democratic Multiples



Someone on this list just reminded me that I forgot to announce to this list
the current show in the gallery which is called Photo+Book. This show is a
national juried exhibition of self-published, on-demand photography books,
nicknamed SPOD books by some clever person on this list.
On Monday, Portland's newspaper, The Oregonian, published an article about
the show. The interesting thing about the article is that the write took the
slant of SPOD books being an innovation that will democratize photography.
This slant has started a couple of interesting conversations in the gallery
about the history and concept of "democratic multiples" in the book arts
world crossing over and influencing the world of fine art photography. For
both worlds, a fascinating evolution.
