Chilly the Snowman is happy to help with your last minute holiday shopping with some suggestions of substantive and stimulating photography books.  Martin Parr’s Luxury is just released by Chris Boot Books; Parr’s sunny Playas, published earlier this year, would make a lovely winter gift as well.  Perhaps there is someone who you are having trouble finding the right gift for; for some, James Mollison’s The Disciples will be the perfect solution.  Capitolio, Chris Anderson’s study of Caracas, is a handsome and excellent book in the vein of Frank’s The Americans.  Simon Roberts’ We English continues the story of the British landscape.  Jan von Holleben’s playful Journey to Everywhere 2010 Wall Calendar may be the unique gift that you did not know you were looking for.


Learn more about these books and many others at the Foto8 online bookshop.  Orders should be placed by Monday 14 December to ensure UK delivery before Christmas.

And until December 16, purchase a 2-year Gift Subscription to 8 Magazine at a 50% discount!

Update: Signed copies of Jan von Holleben’s Mutatis Mutandis just added to the shop!
