    Telos - Clay Harmon
    5.75 x 7.5 inches - Hardcover
    16 pages - 11 duotone reproductions
    1- original photogravure
    signed and numbered
    edition: 100
    North Light Press

    I'm pleased to finally be able to announce the first book in a new series of limited edition books that will soon be available on my North Light Press publishing label. I'm calling it the "11+1 Signature Series" with each book focusing on the work of a specific photographer and consisting of 11 high quality reproductions and 1 original print of varying processes. There will be more about this series in the sponsor forum, but I wanted to also announce it here as book #1 is by none other than Clay Harmon, who has been a long time contributor to this site.

    Telos is one of my favorites of Clay's body of work. A project shot some years ago at night on TMax 3200 film, I have always hoped for it to be book #1 in this series. Clay has been doing some wonderful work with photogravures and I am pleased that he is personally making the included prints as well. I've already had advanced copies of the from the printer and the quality has exceeded our expectations. It is a beautiful, little book and it and others in this series will be a fine addition to any collection.

    The book will officially go on sale this coming Monday, May 2 via the website with any remaining copies going to selected booksellers at a later time. If you'd like to get on the mailing list to be reminded of this, simply add your email HERE.

    Join me in congratulating Clay on his new book!

    Thanks Bob! I'm really pleased with the quality and the response so far has been wonderful. I'm planning 6 of these a year and there is a subscription being worked out where people can reserve all of them. It will come with a slipcase at the end to house the collection for that year. I've been really excited about this as it has been in the works for some time. Feels great that it is finally becoming a reality and that Clay is the landmark Book #1.

    I couldn't agree more, it's a great little jewel of a book and the photogravure is subtle and beautiful...
