At long last, another in our intermittent series of print offers....
We're now virtually certain to do a five-day print offer in January.
I'm toying with the idea of calling it "The Valentines Day Offer" even though it will take place a month before V-day, because the photographers we're going to feature are a dedicated husband-and-wife team who are both accomplished photographers with multiple books under their belts. Paula Chamlee works mainly in 8x10", and her husband Michael A. Smith works in many formats but primarily 8x20". Both make exquisite black-and-white contact prints using gelatin silver chloride contact printing paper.
We will offer a choice of two of Michael's 8x20" contact prints and a choice of two of Paula's 8x10" contact prints. All four prints will most likely be classical landscapes in the best large format tradition. (You can see many examples of their work at their website.) Paula and Michael sell their prints for a minimum of $2,000 and $3,000 respectively—and they sell a lot, too, as we'll talk about in greater detail in due course (their prints are in more than 150 museum collections)—but our prices, for the short duration of our sale, will naturally be only a small fraction of that. Unlike our earlier sales, though, these prints will come archivally mounted and overmatted and, if you wish, framed. Also in a first for us, the four prints will be retired at the close of our sale...the images will never be printed again.
The date for the beginning of the sale hasn't been finalized yet. I'll announce it several times before we commence, so that everyone who wants to be can be ready. And of course anyone who wants to be alerted at the minute the sale starts can sign up for our twitter feed at @TheOnlinePhotog.
This is going to be a nice one. More soon.
