Errata Editions publishes books of educational and cultural value for a wide audience with a special focus on rare photography books which are unavailable to students and new generations of photographers. We are a group of practicing photographers, designers and educators who share a common love for the mediums of photography and book craft.
Errata Editions was founded in 2008 by Valerie Sonnenthal, Jeffrey Ladd and Ed Grazda.
