Jefferson Hayman – I’ll Find Another One Prettier Than You

Photographs copyright Jefferson Hayman 2012 published by Ampersand Gallery and Fine Books

This is a smaller stiff-cover book that utilizes the print on demand technology; hence the binding is tight and creates restrictions in opening and reading the book’s contents. As such, this is not a book that the interior pages will lay flat, which can be frustrating for me in order to photograph the interior pages for this article. Nevertheless, I believe that you will obtain a sense of Hayman’s interesting book project.

One aspect of this photobook type of book publishing is the potential for the edge of photographic image to become entrapped and potentially lost in the gutter (glued binding). The designer of this book has taken this aspect of the binding into careful consideration and has provided generous margins around each photographic plate. Thus Hayman’s photographs can be read in their entirety.

Cheers
