    As far as Brett goes, I guess I'm not as big a fan as some of you.
    You can send it to me.

    Was the print floated in a window or did the overmat cover any part of the print?

    If it doesn't come to the Northwest I'll be on the Amtrak to SB, I lived there when I went to Brooks and know the area very well. I'll probably stay at Jim's apt. in Ventura, no, just kidding Jim, I like the Franciscan next to the beach in SB and a short walk from the train station. There is one very small RV park in SB near the beach too but it would be $1000.00 at $4.50 a gallon just to take my truck and small trailer. I'm a big fan and would love to see the show.

    Y'know, I'm not quite sure. I think it floated but the matte itself was "floating" around without being quite attached to the back board and it seems to me that the signature has its own window, too. Anyway, something weird about it. It may be either in storage or in my other studio, if the latter I'll see if I can find it, shoot it (BLAM!) and post an image.

    Another weird thing about it is that he didn't bother to burn down a hot corner. That is inexcusable. Oh yes, and Somebody framed it. Not saying who (but NOT ME!) and the frame is falling apart too. Quality control was definitely not up to standard.

    I really ought to sell it. Now that he's passed on, even though it sucks, it is probably worth something.

    Catalogue

    Just received the catalogue from Phillips gift shop. It is stunning beginning with the iconic Mendenhall Glacier on the front cover. Scott Hale's biographical essay makes me wish somebody would publish John Wood's manuscript. The essay by Halford-MacLeod & Phillips is good for understanding Brett's contribution to Modernist photography. But, ultimately, its the images that make this $25 catalogue such a good deal. Now if I can only find a way of catching the Amtrak up to DC ;-(
