Lethologica Press are looking for photographic books (including small pamphlets) that are:

  • by Western Australian photographers; or
  • substantially about WA; or
  • produced in WA

for inclusion in the Western Australian Photographic Book Showcase. Books do not necessarily need to be published by established publishers — they can be self-published.

We wish to display WA photographic books, giving a history and context to contemporary photographic book publishing in the Western third of Australia. The covers of some historical books will be scanned and prints mounted on the wall but most books will come from contemporary practitioners and will be displayed to be handled and read by gallery visitors.

If you have old historical photographic books or catalogues already published that you wish to display/publicise or would like to know more details please contact teapot@lethologicapress.org.
