Happy to report that the "Four Book Photobook Sale" was a resounding success. I've become a great fan of the exceptional work of author/curator Keith Davis, so it's great to be able to help get his work—and, perhaps more to the point, the work of the photographers he's written books about—in front of your eyes.
We sold 559 sets of books, which, counting the bonus book, means the Museum shipped a grand total of 2,561 volumes...pretty wonderful.
Most of all I very much hope people who bought the books enjoy them. I have to say that photobooks and prints are one of the great joys of the whole field of photography for me personally, and close to the core of this whole pursuit for me...different from, but just as gratifying as, taking my own photographs and dealing with them in the various ways we do. So I'm always very happy to be an enabler of putting fine books together with other people like me who love photography.
Thanks to everyone involved: Keith first and foremost; everyone who was a customer or considered the offer; and the staff of the Museum Store. Thanks as well to all of you who helped spread the word about the sale in the two days before it ended...that resulted in an additional 90 sales, give or take, so it was significant.
I have another plot up my sleeve for the next book offer. I'll get to work on that.
(Thanks to Keith, Brian, and everyone at the Nelson-Atkins Museum)
