    a landscape book you should have

    hi all,

    you may know this book already. Anyway I got my copy some time ago, and it is awesome! Photographs are stunning and printing/binding couldn't be better. I have the limited edition, with a great print and a beautiful slipcase. It is very very much worth getting it. In my eyes it is a landscape book that you should have - if you like landscapes.

    It looks nice from what I could see from the website. Unfortunately, all the images were in B&W, none in color. While there are several books of B&W that I either own, or want to own - like John Sexton's new book - that I can pass on this one.

    Thanks very much for the link. Looks like a very nice B&W Landscape Book. I just got a hard cover signed copy of John Sexton's book that I purchased at Photo Plus. I can not afford another at this point, and as Robert has indicated, I would personally prefer a book of Color Landscapes.

    looks good on the website, not much of a surprise in that, but i doubt any book is worth $450, well that'd actually be a lot more in Aussie dollars

    i think i'd rather buy a heap of film and make my own images

    $450 includes a print - not a bad price, when you take that into account. $70 for just the book.
    Cheers!

    the limited edition is more an investment than a book. and you get a print with it. Josef's editioned prints starts from $800 or so. So it is very much worth it. Anyway, the trade edition with the book alone is also great - and that for just $70

    that may well be true and known in some quarters, i don't know this person or their work, i'd rather spend the money on my own work, or the work of someone i greatly admire such as Kenro Izu, Michael Kenna, Bill Schwab (sorry if i've spelt that wrong Bill)

    You might want to take the time to look a little deeper. He is EXTREMELY prolific and I think his work stands shoulder-to-shoulder with the other fine photographers you mentioned.
