As a book artist and photobook specialist, this is the time of year that I provide kudo’s to all of the photographers, photobook designers, photobook publishers and the book artists who use photography as a part of their creative medium. .

What came as a very pleasant surprise is when the amazing NYC book designer Elizabeth Avedon (yes, a familiar last name to those following photography over the years) selected my artist book Pine Lake as one of her Best Photography Books of 2014. A total surprise as this is a very limited edition artist book (edition of 25 plus 2 A/P’s) and thus I am assuming not many have actually held or seen this.

What a sweet ending to the year and which reminds me that I need to get my butte back into gear and finish my next limited edition book Bluewater Shore, the second of the three photo-narratives planned for this series.

Cheers!

Earlier today I posted the five photobooks that I had selected for Emaho magazine’s list of Interesting Photo Books for 2014. Since this short list was a bit daunting, I have made a broader selection to post on my photobook review blog, The PhotoBook.

So check it out to see which additional photographers and photobook titles I have chosen as Interesting Photobooks for 2014! https://thephotobook.wordpress.com/2014/12/19/interesting-photobooks-for-2014/
