Gallery 270’s selection of photo books can provide hours of enjoyment, wonder, and inspiration. We welcome you to visit Gallery 270 and view our growing collection of books from artists including George Tice, Baron Wolman, Sebastiao Salgado, Herman Leonard, Jefferson Hayman, Melchior DiGiacomo, and many more.
Most photo books are only printed in small quantities, often less than 5000 and some as few as 1000 copies. Some individual artist made books are made one at a time by hand. Most well printed photo books accrue additional collectible status when they are a first edition and or signed by the artist. Major auction houses like Swann, Christies and Sotheby’s run regular auctions dedicated to photo books. While books can be truly affordable works of art when first released, their price can rise quickly and dramatically in value as the small quantity sell out.
They make the perfect gift for those difficult to buy for. Simply pick a subject, person, or time-period and chances are we have a beautiful photo book that’s certain to strike a resounding chord for an individual. Since we are music fanatics here, you could guess that we represent some of the finest photographers in the world of music. We have a great selection of their books, many of which have been signed.
