Barbera has turned his long term online passion project Love Lost into an ongoing series with the first limited edition book sold at Dashwood Books in New York.

His previous book release, Where They Create, is a visual documentation of the creative environments of artists & creatives that he meets during his travels for assignments, which is based on his blog of the same name and is available globally.
