    I received my hardcover June 4th or 5th. But I don't know if anyone has received their softcover. I'm in the same UPS zone as Michael and Paula, so I usually get packages the next day.

    Curt,

    I am one of the subscribers to the soft edition of the Brett Weston series so I get charged automatically before they ship the next edition. Since I saw the charge the other day I assume the book is soon following through the mail.

    Yes, I saw the charge for my soft edition also. They most certainly have it in the works. I only worry that I will come home and find it in the front yard in a rain storm. If it's UPS they do a good job. Fedex will hide it in the back yard and I will just find it next to the garbage can. The post office will leave a slip and make me go to the post office, stand in line and wait all morning. Most of the time they don't even ring the door bell. I am looking forward to the books.

    Besides the portfolio series, it would be beneficial if someone published Wood's biography of Brett Weston. The excerpts at Brett Weston Archive are tantalizing. I just got a copy of Interviews with Master Photographers that includes a Brett Weston interview. It occurred around 1977, and he does express some strong opinions.

    I just saw these new posts about the next Brett Weston book, and I thought that I would give everyone an update. But first, I would like to thank everyone for their patience with receiving this book. It was bound in Europe, which caused more delays and headaches than we thought it would solve.

    The hardbound books were sent via UPS so they could be tracked and insured. The soft bound books were sent a few days later by USPS media mail, so they will take a little longer to arrive. The same goes for Planets, the next book in the Lodima Press Portfolio Book Series. Again, thank you to the subscribers for all your patience

    Best,
    Richard Boutwell

    After reading the Hagan article on the "Voyage of the Eye" exhibit from NYT, I am reminded of Brett Weston's quote about art critics in the audio excerpts from "Brett Weston: Photographer."

    "I get so Godd**n sick of talk and prattle about art. There's not enough art around or at least there's just too much talk..."
