PhotoNOLA’s IN PRINT book signing event focuses on the publishing side of photography and highlights books by photographers features in the week-long annual photography festival (is PhotoNOLA a festival? I just get used to everything being a festival).

IN PRINT takes place from 5 — 7 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 9, at the Historic New Orleans Collection (410 Chartres Street). The eight photographers whose work will be featured will sign books, receive hobnobbers, and hopefully sell some merchandise so they can afford to buy their families Christmas presents. And speaking of Christmas presents, the books on hand might make some nice ones.

Our friends over at Pelican Bomb have written about two of the books, Deborah Luster’s Tooth for an Eye and Jennifer Shaw’s Hurricane Story (which also got a mention on Rm220), and Loli Cantor’s photographs will be on display at the Antenna Gallery Dec. 10 — Jan. 8.

PhotoNOLA 2011′s keynote lecture by Joséphine Sacabo immediately follows the IN PRINT book signing.
