Update: books and prints

Books

Today, I got the hardcopy draft little book, take a look, I've included a few quick cell phone snaps below.

I'm pretty excited; I'm pretty happy with the results, I would like to tweak the reproduction of three of the included images for the final production run, for a short-run press the results are quite nice.

I expect to make those image revisions and to have two or three people read over, very carefully, the few bits of text in the book for typos and other editing embarrassments, and then submit the order--my hope is to start the production run by the end of the week. I'll be having around 40 books printed at that time, so I'd really like to be sure I haven't gotten something wrong before I send this off!

Hey, there are photos in there!

Prints in the Making

Friday was a Very Busy Printing Day
Friday was a Very Busy Printing Day

For those of you who have selected your prints, almost all of them that were selected by last Saturday are now on their way to you. (The exception is the 30x20 print, which will take a bit longer.)

I was really delighted by the sheer range of images people have selected so far, in fact, only two images, Road into Aurora and Lake Ice, Þingvallavatn, have been asked for more than once as a reward, which is making me feel really good about the depth of the body of work I've been creating. Thanks.  :)
