One Day: Ten Photographers photobook project

No, not the novel by David Nicholls (though this is highly recommended!) but a collection of ten slipcased photobooks curated by Harvey Benge.

A more detailed look at each of the books can be had by clicking on the names below. It is limited to 1000 copies and represents incredible value for money, especially at Amazon's reduced prices. Go here to buy the book in the US or here in the UK.

From Harvey Benge's blog -

'At Paris Photo in November last year I talked to Gerry Badger about "print on demand" publishing and how it was possible to make a book in a day. From that conversation came the idea of getting a group of photographers together to all shoot a book in a day.
John Gossage came on board, so did Martin Parr, Jessica Backhaus, Eva Maria Ocherbauer and Rob Hornstra who were all at Paris Photo. Publisher Klaus Kehrer of Kehrer Verlag in Heidelberg liked the idea and agreed to publish a set of individual photobooks.
The idea gestated into 2010 and was again talked about in May at the Kassel Photobook Festival. Alec Soth joined the group and so did Rinko Kawauchi who were both at Kassel. A last and final participant was Todd Hido.'
