manual.editions is an independent publisher dedicated to the design and making of environmentally conscious handmade photobooks.
Bookmaking is a process that involves trial and error. The book is both the site for experimenting with physical material constructions and a tool for crafting narrative. All of the editions are made entirely by hand by manual.editions.
manual.editions was founded by Tamsin Green in 2021. Her award winning first photobook Born of the Purest Parents (2018) was self-published as a handmade edition of 35 books. The book concept was developed with Yumi Goto at Reminders Photography Stronghold, Japan. The book has been exhibited widely internationally, and is in private and public collections including the Tate and the Victoria & Albert Museum.
