PDF Photo Books
Three free PDF photo books created for the discontinued online ‘Solo Photo Book Month’ project are available to download on this page. The project ran every year between 2008-2011.
The Solo Photo Book Month Project
The Solo Photo Book Month project was an online project where the aim was to create a PDF photography book with thirty-five or more images, in just 31 days. Photographers from all over the world took part with hundreds of books created during the project’s life. Sadly the project folded due to increasing running costs in 2011.
Unfortunately, I heard about Solo Photo Book Month too late to take part in 2008. Three books, however, were created between 2009 and 2011 for the project.
A Trilogy of Books
The first book created for the Solo Photo Book Month project was called ‘Walled City‘. It featured landscape and street photography images taken in the historic city of York, on a very hot late May day in 2009, using the old medieval city walls as a vantage point. The images
The second book, ‘Making Movies‘ created in June 2010, documented the production of a vampire movie in Whitby. The Polaroid-style images were taken using an iPhone app. The book version available here is the extended edition that contains extra photographs from the six weeks of shooting images.
The third and final book was ‘Sand, Sea, Sky and Street‘. The street and landscape images were taken in the English county of Norfolk over a nine-day period from the 1st to 9th July 2011. All of the photos were made using an iPhone and the Hipstamatic photography app. The images were again laid out in the fifty-one-page book in the order they were shot.
Of all the books produced for the Solo Photo Book Month project, I regard Sand, Sea, Sky and Street as the best of the three.
The Print Edition
Sand, Sea, Sky and Street was later adapted into an extended printed edition retitled Sea, Sky, Sand and Street that was published via Blurb in late August 2011. The 80-page photography book featuring over 70 photographs can be purchased for £22 via Blurb HERE.
