Café Royal Books (founded 2005) is an independent publisher based in Southport, England. Originally set up as a way to disseminate art, in multiple, affordably, quickly, and internationally while not relying on 'the gallery'. Café Royal Books publishes artist's books and zines as well as a weekly series of photobook/zines. The photographic publications are part of a long ongoing series, generally working with photographers and their archives, to publish work, which usually falls into 1970–2000 UK documentary / reportage.
In 1971, having studied photography at the Institute of Design in Chicago, alongside Aaron Siskind, Arthur Siegel and Garry Winogrand, Charles Traub founded the Chicago Centre for Contemporary Photography, which became the Museum of Contemporary Photography (MOCP). After moving to New York, he began teaching at the School of Visual Arts, setting up the MFA Photography, Video and Related Media Department, of which he is chair. His work is held in many major gallery and museum collections worldwide.
