Low Budget Photo Book Titles

For those interested in photo books who (currently) have little money, generally live rather frugally or are simply looking for a great gift for little financial outlay, there are photo books in the 'low budget' segment.
These can be volumes produced for little money with a high print run by established publishers, as well as volumes produced by photographers or small publishers in small numbers.

To the 'LOW-BUDGET PHOTO BOOK TITLES' category at Cafe Lehmitz Photobooks

This category contains titles that were available at a price below the spontaneously determined average price of € 25,00 when they were published. However, these initially affordable titles often quickly become incredibly expensive as soon as they are sought after but already sold out by the publisher/photographer.
Therefore, please do not be surprised to find titles here that are now priced much higher; this only reflects the market and is intended to encourage you to also purchase titles for a low price. For the photo book market it is not true that what costs nothing is worth nothing!
Enjoy browsing I this category!
