I have a number of books from Michael and Paula and Lodima Press. Highest quality reproduction around. They are also some of the finest photographers you will ever see. Paula's book HIGH PLAINS FARM is a favorite. Shows where she grew up on a ranch in Texas. All 5x7 and 8x10 images that are reproduced beautifully.
You don't go wrong buying their books.

The Lodima site doesn't mention that the portfolio consists of 12 photographs, they can be seen here: https://www.bonhams.com/auctions/20912/lot/27/

I purchased a copy of "Life Work" when I met Michael and Paula here in Chicago a few years ago. It's a wonderful, straight-forward presentation free of artifice, unlike so many photo books these days. The work speaks for itself and the über careful production values speak for the work.

A thousand dollars, eh? No, I'm keeping my copy, thank you.

Congratulations on scoring a copy of the new book. Looks really lovely.

Mike, thanks for that reminder: I just ordered my copy. And I also have a copy of Life Work from when you recommended it. Since wildfires are burning my part of California, I've had to take inventory of things I might take with me should I need to evacuate, and I think the photo books bought one at a time over the years are probably worth far more than all of my photo equipment combined!

Mike, how about offering a very limited edition of your photos, maybe of a particular selected subject or series?

I hope one of those under consideration for Book of the Year is THIS LAND, An American Portrait - by Jack Spencer. It is one of the best I have seen in a long time. It is not straight photography as he works the images. It is absolutely beautiful work.
