Every day, self-professed book-lover Bernd Kuchenbeiser takes a beautiful black-and-white photograph of a book that has arrested his attention that day with his iPhone. He first started it as a project on Twitter in 2011, and when the platform no longer offered a direct gallery function, the site A Good Book was born. As he said, ‘A good book doesn’t deserve to languish on a bookshelf; it wants to be opened, read, savoured, displayed, recommended’. These books are full of character.
