    Stieglitz's Camera Work--Reprinted

    After a pre-posting check with our veritable leader I thought I would make a post here on APUG about my work to have Stieglitz's Camera Work reprinted.

    Well, the time has finally come and the first 4 issues are being offered to the public!

    Just to give you a more detailed description of what I'm doing: I was able to gather a set of all 50 issues on loan and am in the process of scanning the issues and creating a digital master set to be uploaded to http://www.lulu.com for reprinting. With the availability of books with high quality (well, offset) reproductions of the illustrations

    Seen here:

    http://www.amazon.com/Alfred-Stiegli...1005436&sr=8-1
    http://www.amazon.com/Camera-Works-A...1005436&sr=8-2

    my main concern is the text (though every page in the original is accounted for!), so the books are being printed in b&w to keep the costs down. They will be released in volumes of ~300 pages (which is 3-4 issues depending on individual issue length) with a cost of $19.99/volume.

    I am asking you to spend a little bit of money and invest the time to read Stieglitz's Camera Work: Issues 1-4

    If you have any questions feel free to ask them here or PM or email me privately. As all of the issues pre-date 1923 there is no copyright infringement as it is not copyrighted material, it is in the public domain (this fact was cross-checked with the Library of Congress).

    Correct, there is zero color used in the printing of these books.

    Also, the printed page looks much better than the "Preview" pages provided; I have my copy in hand and it looks much better than I had hoped for!

    The illustrations are still lacking in depth, but as I stated above, the Taschen and Dover books do a much better job with the illustrations than I could do AND keep the volumes affordable. To be honest, I could make the volumes ridiculously expensive with off-set printing and still never approach the quality of the original hand-pulled photogravures.

    Speaking of Stieglitz..
    I am reading
    The Moment Of Seeing: Minor White at the CSFA, and it mentions something that I beleive is attributed to Stieglitz.
    "The Theory of Equivalants"
    Is that something Stieglitz came up with or was it someone else?
    I haven't found any good information on this theory, that is why I am asking here.
