‘Bus-sized’ photography book in world record bid
October 12, 2010
A photography book the size of a bus will bid for the title of the world?s largest photo book when it is unveiled on Thursday.
Dubbed ‘Bookzilla’, the ?20ft x near-14ft beast? will showcase the six winners of a travel photography competition organised by online printing company PhotoBox to mark its 10th anniversary.
A spokesman for the project – to be unveiled at the Old Truman Brewery in Shoreditch, London – said: ?The jaw-dropping ?Honey I Shrunk the Kids? experience for all ages is set to leave visitors speechless as they walk in and out of its mammoth pages in an awe-inspiring photographic tour of the globe.’
The exhibition forms part of the East London Photography Festival, PhotoMonth, which runs throughout October.
The competition winners (above) were Aysin Halil (Asia category); Bob Brewer (North America); Rob Wicks (Europe); Matt Parry (South America); Hannah O’Sullivan (Africa); and Liz Charman (Oceania).
