It's here! The FedEx man woke me up this morning with a slam of the screen door and a press of the doorbell. After sleepily trying to remember what my husband and I were expecting to arrive in the mail, I opened the door and found the box from Blurb.

In short, the book looks great and the images in it are beautiful and inspiring. It's very exciting seeing my words in print, too. This collaborative project is a one-of-a-kind testament to Archer's photographic process and to the artists still using wet plate collodion today. It's also a great addition to your CV if you had your work in it! 

I was really excited to be able to hold this book in my hands this morning and see all the amazing work that is inside. My husband even woke up enough to share in my excitement as we looked through the book for the first time together. (Thanks dear!)

Hey, if anyone needs a willing photographic subject, I'm available. I'd be proud to collaborate with any one of the artists involved in this project. Sorry, though, I don't do nudes. ;-) 

Here are some images I took of the book ...

It's on blurb, but I thought Quinn was going to check the quality first to see if this is the route he wanted to go. Caron, should the link be posted?

Both Quinn and I had ordered copies of the book after Quinn had uploaded it - that way we would have a copy from a USA and EU printer. Quinn wanted to be sure that the reproduction looked as good as it could given the amount of time and effort he had made in ensuring that the tonal reproduction was accurate. I guess it is and we and FSA Memorial are open for business :)

I'm just getting to this (morning). Caron wrote me yesterday and told me she had received a copy - she was the "test" stateside. As Carl said, we both ordered here in Europe. Mine won't arrive for a while and I know people want to get these so last night, I asked Caron to post her snaps of the book.

From her images, it looks great. I hope that holds true (and it should) for every copy. I'll make a sticky post with a URL right now. 



Thanks!
