    An Appreciation

    Just received my copy of "Edward Weston LIFE WORK" from Michael and Paula's Lodima (Amidol backwards, btw hehe) Press. Stunning is the only and very limited word that comes to mind. Many years ago, I was able to see an extensive exhibit of Weston's work at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. The prints made an indelible impression and I have to say the reproductions in this book are nearly facsimiles to the extent memory serves. (I also get to see and even pick up, hold and examine some at the AIPAD show in NYC every February.)

    But in addition, since the book was several months late in being sent for reasons beyond the control of Lodima, I was also sent a complimentary copy of Micheal's book, "The Students of Deep Springs College". Who the hell does that anymore if they ever in fact did? Hence...an appreciation. I will never hesitate to deal with Michael and Paula's enterprises whenever I have the wherewithal to purchase something that seems interesting. I'm IMPRESSED!

    So the books are shipping now?!? I was wondering when they were going to get around to doing that. John, I must say that this is a cruel thing you've done as I'm going to be rushing home to check the mail everyday from now until the book arrives! I also pre-ordered the book.

    My account was charged on Friday, so I suspected the book was on the way. I've been unable to sleep in anticipation.

    I also received the EW book yesterday. Very impressive to say the least. I have not had a chance to go through the entire book, but what I have seen is fantastic.

    The Deep Springs book is what ended up in my hands last night. What a nice surprise that was. This book is also very impressive. I've never seen M Smith's work in print. What a treat.

    BMAC & Jeremy, Hope you have yours now...because I found mine at the front door today. Now for a nice cup of coffee and some quite to enjoy it. First glance tells me this is no ordinary publication, the book just feels good and the quick look at the quality of the images I did see is superb. Hope you guys all get yours soon.
