Café Royal Books is a publisher of limited edition photographic titles focusing on British documentary photography. Founded by Craig Anderson the aim is to create a focussed and complete archive of British documentary photography.
The publications affordable, democratic, utilitarian and useful, without fuss or decoration. The images, history and the cultural archive are the focus. Helped by, but not overwhelmed by the design. We like Craigs’ work in bringing this collection together and offer a selection of titles here that are a picture record of British culture.
Our Photography and Art section features books on Dada, Banksy and Martin Parr, each with the “underground” tendencies. Art of Punk by Russ Bestley and Alex Ogg is featured, as well as The Bollocks by Dennis Morris, Morrisey by Kevin Cummins and Young Punks by Sheila Rock. Last but not least, you can find a range of Cafê Royal Books’ limited edition photographic titles here that focus on British documentary photography.
