The first complete illustrated bibliography of 1,000 iconic photobooks created by members of the renowned photo agency

Published on the occasion of Magnum Photos' seventieth anniversary, this fascinating in-depth survey brings Magnum's history alive through the genre of the photobook – an essential vehicle for photographers to share their work.

Its pages include unpublished behind-the-scenes material, together with ephemera from the photographers' archives about the making of their books. With an introduction by Fred Ritchin and texts by Carole Naggar, this book explores the evolution of the photobook, as well as the important role that Magnum has played in the history of documentary photography.

Fred Ritchin is dean of the school at the International Center of Photography in New York. He has written and lectured internationally, and has authored numerous acclaimed books.

Carole Naggar is co-founder and special projects editor of PixelPress. A regular contributor to Aperture magazine, she is working on a biography of Chim (David Seymour), co-founder of Magnum Photos.
