After selling the first box of book at last Thursday's exhibition opening, we now have a fresh box of 'The Shops'. You can come in and see the accompanying exhibition of Peter Black's photographs and buy a book for $40.00.
Following the official book launches, 'The Shops' was the week's number 1 seller at Unity Books, Auckland, and number two in the Wellington Unity Books shop on Willis St.
Also; twice, I was in on conversations in which some very design-conscious photographers declared the cover of 'The Shops' to be the best cover of any photo book ever. This may have been fueled by a few glasses of wine, and some rather nice cheese, but I'm inclined for now to agree.
Both exhibitions, as well as 'Partial Loss' an exhibition by Cathy Tuato'o Ross and Ellen Smith, run till 28th November 2016.
'The Shops' will be available for sale indefinitely; see the Photospace Gallery books page.
