In late 80’s, Ken Schles was not happy with just showing his work on some gallery walls and get over with it. And that is how the idea of making a book fell in place. With a cult-following then, Schles legendary book ‘Invisible City’, was a big success in pre-internet age as it was a New York Times notable book of the year in 1988 and had won an award for book design from the American Institute of Graphic Arts. With his traditional love for photography books and fear of loosing to a generation with small number of books, originally published by Twelvetress Press in 1988, Schles wanted to explore the growing interest of the photobook enthusiasts and had published a free online edition of his book with The Photobook Club in 2012 and re-published edition with Steidl in 2014.
