Triplekite Books continue to build a reputation as an innovative publisher of contemporary landscape and nature photography with three slim volumes selling at a very reasonable £18.50 each. Publisher David Breen explains the rationale for the new format: "“These are the first three releases in our intended new series of smaller, accessible, landscape photography books. The format allows us to showcase lesser known artists, project work, or smaller bodies of work. Despite the accessible pricing and size, the production standards will be exactly the same as all our books. We hope to release a number of these each year building up an ever growing collection.”
