If you like beautifully produced fine press books on photography Lumiere Press is an amazing discovery. The press is devoted exclusively to photography. The books are hand typeset, printed and bound to the quality and tradition of the very best private press books.
Their latest book is ‘Black Star’, The Historical Print Collection of the Black Star Publishing Company. To quote Lumiere Press: ‘Black Star presents a portfolio of images that define photojournalism – “a point at which humanity and acuity coalesce” – and chronicles the story of the agency’s founders Kurt Safranski, Ernest Mayer and Kurt Kornfeld
and their successors Howard and Ben Chapnick – a narrative of the lives of a handful of men reflected in the arc and documentation of their times.’
Lumiere Press is owned by Michael Torosian and is based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Visit the Lumiere Press website.
