Profile Information


I have an internet bookshop dedicated to early Asian photography, later expanded to non-western and colonial photography: see:

The books are modern that is to say published after WWII. I have a very limited antiquarian stock.

I am interested in the titles[publishers] of photobooks, sales catalogues and postcard books  on colonial photography(language is not important) recently published.
