Photobooks of the year roundups

You will have noticed that the leaves have started dropping off the trees, and the shops have started putting up their Christmas decorations.  Yes, we are approaching the end of the year!.  With it, expect a blizzard of end-of-year photobook surveys. 

An early list (back in July) comes from Top 10: Best photography books of 2013 (until now).  And now we have lists from Paris Photo/Aperture  (Awards shortlist); Kassell Foto Book Festival (Photobook awards 2013), and the Lucie Awards (nominations).

There is always a healthy amount of diversity in these lists, but one book that appears on three of these lists is Mike Brodie's, A period of juvenile prosperity, published by Twin Palms.
