Past print sale: regarding the recent Caponigro Father/Son print sale, I've received word that all the prints are made and about a quarter have already shipped, which is fast work. We'll post another update when all the shipments have been sent. Very eager to hear how people like them!
Future print sale: As I mentioned yesterday, our next sale will feature three beautiful prints from Peter's new Paris book, all made by Voja Mitrovic and signed by Peter. It starts on October 29th. I think. Or a day or two thereafter.
Turnley book: First day sales were beyond outstanding, and something like 20% of the entire print run is already spoken for. So the press run might go faster than anyone expected. As for the only complaints I've heard, it's true that international shipping is regrettably expensive...but then, I think it entails Peter's assistant standing in line at the shipper and filling out the customs forms by hand. It works the other way around too—just recently I was fielding complaints from U.S. Americans about the high cost of getting Here Far Away from the U.K. Meanwhile, Ned Bunnell has found a nice book for you with free shipping...! A decent copy of Daido Moriyama's 1972 masterpiece Shashin yo Sayonara (Bye Bye Photography). The shipping cost on that one is very reasonable, you must admit.
Here Far Away book: ...And speaking of that, I kind of wish I'd never gotten started doing updates about Here Far Away—it almost needs its own blog, where we could cover nothing but daily updates on its status. But, I think I've located a source of supply. I'll let you know ASAP.
Call for Work: I'm feeling humbled and grateful. Humbled to have so many wonderful people willing to send work at my request, and grateful for all the nice comments and thoughtful submissions. It's really nice to hear from so many readers I don't usually hear from, and it's also been fun to put some actual pictures with the familiar names of frequent commenters. I've been going through all the submissions as they come in, and then returning to each one in order for a more careful, contemplative look after a little time has passed. Thanks to everyone who has already submitted work, and for those who haven't, the door is still open, up until October 7th.
(Thanks to Ned)
