'World of Lith Printing' is here (well almost)
I hope this is the correct and appropriate place to post this announcement. I have limited experience of these forums and don't wish to violate any etiquette.
Perhaps some of you who are not on the WOLP mailing list might be interested to read the latest brief news update below. The advance copies have just arrived and they do look very handsome with some wonderful images, quite a few from APUG members.
THE WORLD OF LITH PRINTING News update September 30th 2006.
First the good news …
(and then some good news):
I received today my first 2 of the 12 advance copies of the book, air-mailed from Singapore for magazine reviewers.
I am pleased to be able to tell you all that it looks VERY handsome.
Knowing the quality of the images that have been contributed, I did expect it to be good. But there is nothing quite like the moment of holding one's new book for the very first time and opening it with that inevitable mixture of both excitement and apprehension.
I have to say that I was very impressed and it even exceeds my expectations.
It is much larger than the first Lith printing book, 'The Master Photographer's Lith printing Course' and the quality of reproduction and paper are very good indeed. The images are striking, eye-catching and very varied in concept, style and technique and they are all backed up by a wealth of information. I think it will be very inspirational, both for lith printers and also for anybody who is involved with other image-making processes and I am sure that all of you who have work represented in it will be very pleased.
The hard back limited edition is very elegant too, with a beige cover, inserted into a sturdy cloth covered slip case in a darker brown. The minimal title text is in gold blocking.
I would like to once again thank all of you who supported this project and made it possible - thank you.
The other good news is that the book is on time and may actually arrive a little early. All the other books are to be sent surface post from Singapore and should dock in 2 - 3 weeks time. As soon as my orders arrive, after sorting and dispatch from the warehouse, I shall complete the signing and numbering and begin posting as quickly as I can. I hope this may be by the end of September.
Good news indeed, looking forward to it.
Sure Tim, wave the candy at us then tell us we can't have it for 2 months!
Waiting eaglery, impatiently,
I can not wait. Your previous books were singlehandedly responsable for my return to the darkroom.
I'm really looking forward to this new "Lith-bible".
Congratulations Tim, I wish you the best with sales, and a big "thank you" for passing along your knowledge in this field.

2 months? With any luck and a following wind it should be about 4 weeks :-)
