"An' a one, an' a two...."
Last Wednesday, we offered for purchase prints of "Summer Storm, Chicago," by Ken Tanaka. The run of 50 prints sold out in six hours and four minutes, and were gone before many readers even knew the sale had started. So, as promised on Thursday, we're now offering 50 (+ 10) more. This sale will start now and continue until noon Central U.S. time Thursday, July 15th, or until all the prints are sold, whichever comes first.
The picture was taken with a Phase One P65+ digital back on a Mamiya camera. Ken has produced an information sheet that will be included with the print that covers technical details, and also tells about the storm.
The regular size prints have an image area of approximately 9.5 x 12.75". The cost for U.S. orders is $155. Orders for international delivery (this includes Canada) cost $175; in both cases, shipping is included in the price.

Meanwhile, after getting several requests, Ken has produced a very small run of much larger prints of this image, which he says are "jaw-droppingly good" and "un-[expletive deleted]-believable." (I've not seen one, but I'm getting one.) There are only ten of these. The prints are on 17x22" paper with a image area of 15x20". The cost is $450 for U.S. orders and $475 for international orders, shipping included. Although this is not a limited edition, Ken has agreed never again to sell any print of this picture of this size or larger for a lower price*.

All the prints are inkjet prints made on Ilford Gold Fibre Silk paper using Epson Ultrachrome K3 inks.
Finally, let me again thank Ken for working with me on this, and all of you for your interest and enthusiasm. This has been fun. However, I must say that this will for sure be the last of this print sale! No more after this.
*The same is true for the smaller prints as well.
