Craig Atkinson

Since 2005 Craig Atkinson has been publishing (as Café Royal Books) British documentary photography. His aim is to source, preserve and make accessible a complete collection of a genre of photography, which has historically been ignored. The books sit between photobooks, reference/ visual and cultural history. They’re democratic and utilitarian, published weekly and cost less than a ‘curated’ coffee. So far he has published over 500 books, with over 100000 in circulation and available in many museum, library, gallery and university collections.
