I'm happy to announce that the Wet Plate Collodion Day Book 2009 is ready! You can order a copy, or two from Blurb: - - The Wet Plate Collodion Day Book 2009

Please keep in mind that the preview of the book sucks (quality). That's the only reason I didn't release it sooner. Caron got her copy in the US and sent me some snaps - it looks great in print, so forget about the preview. 

Please spread the word about the book. 

Thanks to every one that participated! Great job! We did it!!

Would someone cross -post this to the cw forum - someone might like a copy or two. I am at work at the moment and can't access that site! It'd be worth posting it to APUG too.

I think I've ordered the book... Blurb seems to have the hickups right now, but it hopefully worked anyway.

I just got a copy of the Wet Plate Day book - I'm very pleased! The reproduction looks great! Follow Blurb's "recipe" and you'll get as close to what you submit to them as possible (w/POD).
Again, I'm impressed!
Eddie, I don't know about hardcover... I'll look at it - there is a small 1st release snafu that I would like to fix, maybe I can do it then - no guarantees though.

I think this is a neat idea.  I first saw it posted over on APUG.  I'll have to see about getting myself a copy at some point.

Hello Diane,
You should! I can't say how long these will be available, but I know it won't be past April of 2010. Be sure to get a copy before then!
It's special today, but in 2 or 5 or 10 years from now, it will be really special! A great piece to collect, if you're into that kind of thing (I am ;-)
Keep in mind, this is the first all Collodion "group" project of this size and scope  - not to mention the "cause" it's supporting - it's just a win-win all the way around!

Got my two copies today, I've only had time to quickly flip through it but I'm very impressed with the quality of the printing. The images look absolutely great.
Thanks, Quinn!

I received the book today. 

It is really, really good! The printing looks great, I'm very positively surprised! (I work in an advertising/prepress environment—I'm not easily impressed.) 

And most importantly: the images!!! Well done everyone who participated! It was a joy to see your work!

Our copies arrived last week. My daughter Sarah was pretty excited about being published at 15 years old. She took the book to school to show off to her friends. :-) Proud papa, here.
