In the specialized photo bookstore in Huis Marseille you will find a carefully compiled selection of national and international photo books by leading and emerging photographers, along with Huis Marseille’s own publications, unique postcards, and stylish merchandise.
In the world of art photography, the photo book occupies an important place, and a good book is not easy to make. Many photographers go to great lengths to find a striking form in which their photography is at its best. This is a complex process in which paper selection, printing, design, and image sequence all play an important role. Not only does one make a photo book, but there is also an often invisible world behind it of passionate designers, printers, and publishers who make these special projects possible. In the end, a good photo book tells a powerful and well-thought-out story, not only in the printed images but also in the materiality of the object itself. So you can only really appreciate a book when you have it physically in your hands.
In Huis Marseille’s store, you can get acquainted with an extensive selection of the best photo books that are currently available. Our staff maintains close ties with international publishers as well as smaller publishers and self-publishing photographers. We are constantly looking for special photo books and can therefore regularly offer books that can hardly be found anywhere else. In addition to this special selection, you will always find publications related to current and previous exhibitions in the museum store.
With great regularity, a special edition by the exhibiting photographer(s) is offered during the current exhibition. Such an edition is produced exclusively for the museum in a limited edition. With a price level of around 300 euros, this is an excellent opportunity to purchase a real work of art for a very accessible price.
Merchandise and postcards
In addition to photo books, the museum store offers a fine selection of merchandise and a large assortment of unique postcards for sale exclusively at Huis Marseille.
