It really has been an incredible year for photobooks, and not just online. Indeed, while sites dedicated to photobooks continue to pop up, there's been several real-life events around books recently. An exhibit of Japanese photobooks at the Photographer's Gallery in London drew over 40,000 visitors, while Facebook group meetups and pop-up libraries have also been more and more common. This makes sense, given that books have become a way for people to get away from screens and have more of a "real-life" interaction. Sure, more photobook apps for iPad are also coming out, but it seems like there's never been more interest in the tactile experience provided by good old ink and paper.
