The Best Books of 2013


Best Books 2013 The Best Books of 2013 Announcing the Best Books of 2013 with out list of 30 contributors and the 26 most selected books of the year.

We are thrilled to announce this year's Best Books featuring the selections by 30 personalities from across the photo world. Each year the photo-eye staff comes together to nominate contributors who we ask to pick up to 10 books they feel were the best of the year. On the most basic level a photobook functions as a vehicle for the display of photography, but a well-executed photobook is a work of art in its own right. From binding to paper to printing, sequencing, layout and design, each element of a photobook works to create a unique reading experience, and when done well, inspires a new level of engagement.

We love photobooks and for us, Best Books is a celebration of the amazingly diverse and expressive nature of the form. We are excited to share with you some of the year's best, books that display innovative design, remarkable storytelling and some really great images.

The contributors are:


This year we're doing things little bit differently — over the next week we'll release a few lists each day instead of publishing them all at once as we've done in previous years. We hope this method will make the Best Books of 2013 a bit more digestible while also creating a week of discoveries. As the new lists are published, we'll add a link to the contributor's names listed above.

We kick things off today with our list of top picks — the 26 most selected books of the year. We'll begin publishing individual lists tomorrow. And we're always interested to see books that may have been missed — we hope you'll share your picks in the comments.
