In the past, a chapbook was a small booklet or a brochure, yet today the word is used for a small handmade artist book that usually includes poetry, with emphasis on the editorial quality, often using elaborate calligraphy and illustrations. This is one step away from a small book, whose essence are pictures or photographs.

The idea of a chapbook, like a folio, is based on a holistic overview of a photographic project. In my case, it is a collection of over a dozen, and sometimes up to twenty photographs, with a text component. Thanks to the smaller format and binding, this is a more manageable version of the folio, usually containing a slightly greater number of photographs.
