[UPDATE—Sorry, this is another false alarm, unless Amazon will take your order for a reserved copy. I heard from Dewi and the reprint is (as of a few days ago) fixed for July, which means copies will be shipping in the U.K. by mid-August and in the USA by September.
Might as well try to get an order in, but, as Dewi put it, "Amazon are a little premature." —Mike the Ed.]
Finally, finally—the second edition of Here Far Away has appeared, at long last, from Dewi Lewis Publishing.
I gotta issue my strongest possible "buy recommendation" for this—our Book of the Year for 2012. See my comments here. A tour-de-force of a retrospective.
It's possible that this isn't the second edition, that somebody just found a cache of them in the Amazon warehouse somewhere. We've had a false alarm before. I'll get confirmation from Dewi as soon as I can.
If Here Far Away turns out not to be to your taste (possible), you'll have no trouble at all getting rid of your copy in a year or two. The problem will be the opposite...if you don't have a copy and want one, the time will come soon when it will cost you an obscene wad of cash. Get this while you can. Mark my words.

Marius: "I got the German version some time ago and it's wonderful. Although the pictures could be a little bigger for my taste. And speaking of second editions: I asked the Steidl staff some days ago if they will reprint Color Correction by Ernst Haas (first edition available now for over $ 1,600—through some Amazon affiliate). They told me a reprint is planned for the late fall this year. I really hope to get one this time."
