This Is Not My Book / Erik van der Weijde
Over the last ten years, Dutch photographer Erik van der Weijde has been responsible for over fifty publications: these include not only slim photozines and simply produced brochures but also voluminous cloth-bound books — many of them distributed via his own publishing house 4478ZINE.
This Is Not My Book provides, for the first time, an overview of van der Weijde body of work, which constitutes one of the most important artistic practices at the interface between photography and independent publishing.
The book uses large-format representations to show the lines of connection between the individual publications. It also contains van der Weijde’s 4478ZINE publishing manifesto and other texts as well as five conversations with the publishers Anne König and Jan Wenzel.
This Is Not My Book indicates a full stop, an act of punctuation set down by the author with his published work.
