More best of lists



If you really want to see more “best of 2011 photobooks,” have a look at Photo-Eye’s selection and Time Magazine’s The Photobooks We Loved. Marc Feustel updated his tallying of the lists (he went through 50+ lists!). Seeing, yet again, that there appears to be very little consensus on the books seems to point to a simple fact: The photobook market is heavily fragmented, and for many people, a lot of books are literally out of reach. It’s an interesting exercise to speculate what the “best of” lists would look like if each of the people producing one had had access to each of the books included in any list (not to mention all the books that didn’t even make it on any list).
