Only one chair????

Dear Eric,

So how much ya willing to pay me to clone in more chairs?

'Cause I could do that... for a price.

Eric, for fifty bucks you'd be lucky to get a seat on the bus all the way to California and back ...

Print size?

But it's a landscape (sort of)!

Dear Chester,

Mike and I are going to settle that after he sees (and likes!) prints. It'll be “midsized.” That is, a paper size somewhere between 11 x 14 and 12 x 17 inches.

Ctein my comment was more to the point that it would be a beautiful place to share with someone. Hence the need for two chairs.

[I have four chairs, and they sort of migrate around the property as needed. They're retired for the season anyway, awaiting warmer weather. --Mike]

Has Ctein ever published a book on how he makes prints?

[I'll leave this for him to answer...that book would sell, though, I'll bet, if it were marketed right. --Mike]

If that book got kickstarted or some such, it might be the first time I donated ahead...

Thanks, Ctein....

Dear Dave & Marshall,

I've considered it. Been considering it ever since POST EXPOSURE went out of print. The problem is that I don't have a narrative flow for the book. It's just a mishmash of information in my head. It hasn't gelled into a coherent narrative. Heck, I don't even know if it would be a standalone book or an expansion of POST EXPOSURE (there are arguments both ways).Absent such a structure, the book can't happen.

But if it did happen, it would be self-published as an e-book/PoD and I would bankroll it via kickstarter, since I wouldn't be getting a publisher's advance.

I'm quite certain I would sell enough copies to make it worth my while, if I could only figure out what the book would be. At this point I'm not getting my hopes up.

So much depends upon the red lawn chair ...
