A coffee table book featuring 25 years of portraits by Alaska photographer, Clark James Mishler.

Edited from thousands of professional and personal images, the Portrait Alaska book is a companion piece to the Portrait Alaska exhibition by photographer, Clark James Mishler, and scheduled to open at the Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center on April 20, 2013. Portrait Alaska will feature a cross-section of Alaska’s people and their geographic, social, economic, and cultural diversity. This book will demonstrate the independence and character of Alaskans, while also emphasizing ties that connect residents across a large geographic area.

Award winning photographer, Clark James Mishler, has documented Alaska’s people for over 25 years. His portraits have been included in dozens of books, magazines articles, and permanent installations at the Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center and the Smithsonian Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C. His most recent book, ANCHORAGE, LIfe at the Edge of the Frontier, earned a Gold Award by the Independent Publisher’s Association and has sold over 10,000 copies.  Mr. Mishler’s blog has, since January of 2010, posted a portrait each day and is among the longest running portrait-a-day projects in the world.

The Portrait Alaska “coffee table” book, will be professionally designed and printed with the highest quality four-color reproduction. Containing approximately 120 pages and nearly 300 of Mr. Mishler’s unique portraits, it will also feature an essay by Alaska Anthropologist, Dr. Stephen Haycox, and an initial retail price of approximately $30.

It is the goal of this Kickstarter project to raise funds in order to design, print, ship and store books for a minimum of one year. The production plan includes design and production through January 6, 2013. Printing production, including color proofing, will proceed through February with printing, binding, and shipping through mid-March. Books are expected to arrive in Anchorage by Mid April, 2013.
