    Bill Schwab Photographs

    Finally got around to finishing some book cases this weeek and was unloading boxes of books that had been stored for a while. Came across a flat mailer, looked inside and there was this perfect little gem of a book - Bill Schwab Photographs.

    Still in the original bag, with a note from Bill, Oct. 1999. I recall finding Bill's web site and the excitement that he was going to publish a book of his work - as I thumber through the little book, there are less than 40 pages, I was reminded why I wanted to purchase the book, the reproduction is excellent.

    Don't know if Bill has any more of these or not, limited to 1000 copies. If he does grab one up, you will not be disappointed.

    Bill - if you see this, Thanks for making my day - Again!!

    A blast from the past. Glad that you like it and happy it still stands up. They did do a fine job with the reproduction. Unfortunately... (or fortunately depending upon your perspective ) that one is long gone. I did keep a couple back for the personal stash... who knows?

    Thanks for digging it out Mike!

    Best, Bill

    Just found one on Amazon for under $20.
    Used, in "Good" condition, but I'm sure I'll enjoy it.

    "Photographs" sits on top of my book case and I peruse it regularly. The images are timeless.

    I bought one at a bookstore a while back. At the time I didn't know who Bill was. I never showed it to my wife. Not on purpose. Just never got around to it. Afew years later she went to the Halsted Gallery and bought me a copy of "The Rouge" for Christmas. While she was there Tom Halsted talked her into buying Bill's little book. I was quite surprised when I opened both of the gifts. A little later I went into the office and brought out the book I had purchased previously. She asked me when I got it and I told her. Then I told her that hers was better. It was autographed by Bill.

    I am lucky enough to call Bill a friend.

    I am also lucky enough to not only have gone to Iceland with him,
    but he did a portrait of me while there.

    See it here.

    He is truly a great guy and amazing photographer.

    I just bought the book from Amazon!

    Thanks for the heads up! I love Bill's work and now I have a book! Do you think if I send it to you Bill, you could sign it for me? It would mean alot.
    Thanks again.
