Richard Billingham's 1996 photobook ‘Ray's a Laugh’ is considered one of the most important British contemporary photobooks. The original book consisted only of photographs, the idea being that the photographs stood for themselves. The only text to the book was a paragraph by Billingham on the back of the book and a quote from Robert Frank. ‘Ray’s a Laugh’ original 1996 edition is also cited on pages 304-305 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's ‘The Photobook: A History Volume II’.

This Errata edition Books on Books no. 18 covers Ray’s a Laugh’s historical significance, its production, bibliography of the artist and contains every page spread from the original classic book.
