Thousandfold Photobook Fair is a self-supporting photobook fair that supports independent photobook publishers and self-published photographers. It works with festivals and initiatives to create a cultural programme around the photobook, connect publishers with their audiences and bring together lovers of photography and photobooks. Thousandfold Photobook Fair is organised by dienacht e.V. and run by Calin Kruse (dienacht Publishing / Leipzig Photobook Festival).
