PUBLICATION INFORMATION - The monograph will be limited to 250 copies worldwide, the size will be approximately 8.5 x 9.5" horizontal, cloth-bound hardcover, 96 pages, printed by Oddi in Iceland. The book will match my first monograph, Permanence, and they will look great next to each other on your bookshelf.

DISCOVERED MISSING - Iceland is isolated, removed, and independent. Alone in a cold sea, sparsely populated, its volcanic visage is harsh and unrelenting. Its relationships with its neighboring countries reflect the residents' independence and stoicism, maintaining distance and self-sufficiency. Discovering Iceland for itself, finding what's missing from the known story of Iceland, seeing the country via its one (mostly) drivable road is its own discovery. Volcanic and ever-changing landscapes, barren fields, inhospitable winters, sparse population. Unanticipated landscapes are hidden in plain view. The monograph will include illustrations by Carin Johnson and Rena Teratani, and an essay by Joshua Yaffa. It will also include the names of every supporter who helped me make this book. All pledges will help in the production of this monograph.

Risks and challenges

Last time around, my shipping workflow was not good enough. This time, everything will be ready to ship before the books arrive. Graphic design for the book has already been completed.
