Self publishing

Author: Colin | Published: 6/7/10

I finally got round to reading a Guardian article I bookmarked last month: ‘Self-publish or be damned: why photographers are going it alone‘ by Sean O’Hagan and was struck by this paragraph:

In the continuing digital age, then, the future of the DIY photobook seems assured for perhaps the same reasons that independent record labels currently continue to thrive as major labels falter. The message seems to be that small is not only beautiful, it’s also cost-effective and creatively liberating. In today’s fragmented pop culture, some of the most interesting and challenging developments still happen on the margins, where the mainstream fears to tread.

It’s something I’ve been pleased to see happening on Hard Format:

TQA Records
Mie Records


  1. yes! i firmly believe the self-published/hand-assembled approach is the future for hardfotmat releases, particularly the cd.

  2. I’m not sure why but this web site is loading extremely slow for me.
    Is anyone else having this problem or is it a issue on my end?
    I’ll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.

  3. When some one searches for his necessary thing, thus he/she wishes
    to be available that in detail, therefore that thing is maintained over here.

  4. Good day! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering
    if you knew where I could find a captcha plugin for my comment form?

    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one?
    Thanks a lot!

  6. Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and all. Nevertheless think
    about if you added some great pictures or videos to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with pics and video clips, this website could definitely
    be one of the most beneficial in its niche.
    Awesome blog!

  11. I’m amazed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s equally educative and entertaining, and let me
    tell you, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something
    which not enough men and women are speaking intelligently
    about. I am very happy that I found this
    during my hunt for something regarding this. adreamoftrains website hosting
