To keep you all apprised, given the extraordinary circumstance of Hurricane Sandy: I heard from Michael A. Smith again this afternoon. Gradually they are getting combobulated: phone service is back in Pennsylvania although email is not. Michael and Paula have now departed for Paris Photo, as planned, but their assistant (whose name I still don't know) has moved operations to his own residence and is working overtime to get the rest of the books shipped. Two hundred books went out today and Michael is hopeful that all the rest will be on the way by tomorrow.
They are unable to charge credit cards, with their Internet not working, but Michael made the decision to go ahead and send the books before charging peoples' cards in order that delivery not be delayed any longer. He'll actually charge your card (if yours is not one of the ones not processed before Sandy hit) when he returns from Paris.
Some people should have received their books already—some were shipped before the storm. If you've gotten yours, what do you think?

Mark Johnson: "Hadn't realised book reproduction could be so powerful—you're drawn into the very deep, rich tonalities. The Mexican images on matt surface paper don't have any sense of an overlying paper surface between the image, even the subject, and the eye. The plates are all profoundly beautiful. (I would love to have seen even more of the Point Lobos imagery.) I've not yet had time to read the text—a pleasure to come."
