Tim Barber, endless smatterer of photo and mishmash ephemera on his longtime website, Tiny Vices, has begun a book branch of his electronic brain, aptly named Tiny Vices Books. The travelling TV shows had often been a purposefully overwhelming hullabaloo of endless photographers and visual artists, but the books have calmed and coagulated, one TVer at a time. Barber's got good taste (our taste) and will be publishing work by many FADER photographers. Longtime friend Michael Schmelling's book is out now, along with books by Aurel Schmidt with whom we would like to trade minds, collager Kim Krans and Barber himself, and in the near future he'll have a book by one of our most frequent contributors, Jason Nocito. As folks with a website and print edition ourselves, it's a nice parallel kinship.
