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.
One copy of each book that we publish is available in the manual.editions library to borrow within the UK.
The Sustainable Photobook Publishing (SPP) Network is a group of photographers, publishers, academics and writers who get together to share knowledge both with each other and the wider world.
