I'm glad you asked Rene. The book will be finished sometime in the next week. I had so many people that either missed the deadline, or didn't understand the procedure, I had to scrap the original work and start over again (with some help) with a new layout. The page count changed and the TOC, etc. 

Right now, the book is an 8x10, full color, perfect bound piece and it's about 100 pages - I asked a good friend to write a foreword for it. She did a wonderful job. 

Everyone involved should be VERY proud of this work. I feel like I know you all better, too. It's interesting when you spend a lot of time with other people's work, it's a good thing. 

One final note:  I hope we can get the word out and move some of these books. Every penny, literally every cent, beyond the cost of printing the book will go toward the Archer project. And it's going to take a lot of book sales to make it happen (but we can do it). Please keep that in mind as you purchase and tell others about this project and book. It's a great cause and there's no one profiting from it except Archer and every photographer that made images on May 2, 2009.

I am so pumped up about this.
So far this year, I've been in a big-budget movie playing the fiddle, recorded my first CD with a band this week and now I'll have pictures in a book. A Trifecta!

I'm anxious to see the book too.  A good fiddler is a joy to listen to, nice to know you play Bruce.  I attempt the mandolin and guitar...

Forwarded the Archer Project web page to a couple of my mom's old camera clubs and they all seemed very interested to see and buy. Hope they do, there's a bunch of 'em!

Garrett- LOL, I attempt to play mandolin and guitar too......

great stuff!  great work everyone thanks.

a few mionor inquires.  where can we link to to give other s an idea on the book?  i know we could send people to the blurb page but is there anywhere else we can link to so people get an idea on what and why  the book is.  i just looked at this "book" page on the wet plate day site.  it seems to be geared more towards us making images and not about what the book is from other interested parties.  oh,  and the text on that page should now read "8x10 full color book" as opposed to the 8.5x6.5.

i just think that it would be good to have a nice concise page to send to family friends and other artists that they can go and get an idea about what the is book is about and what the cause is.  now if this will be handled on the blurb page that is great but it may be better to have something so us hacks (ME) are not required to make a presentation of the book individually.  hope this makes sense.

If I can get the info on where people can buy it, I will see if it can be published in the International Photography Hall of Fame newsletter that is featuring collodion this coming month.

Great info and encouragement. 

I'm working with Geert-Jan to get a page up on the WPD site about the book, where to buy etc. It will be up in the next few days.

The Wet Plate Day Book is finished. There are a couple of adjustments to do on the cover (for printing) and some tweaking on the Foreword - but for all intents and purposes, it's done.
 
Here's the caveat; I'm leaving for Sweden and won't have it available until a few days after I return. So, look for it to be available between the 9th and 12th of September - I'll post an announcement and the word will spread (I hope).

Thanks for the heads up, Quinn.  Thanks also for your work on this project.  It will be nice to see the book, when it's published.  I am definitely ordering a copy.

Hope you have a great time in Sweden.

Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to bring this project to life...

I would imagine that Archer would be quietly proud of the humble tribute offered by our book.

I can't wait. to see it.

best,
