    Awesome!

    Merg, do you have any additional details about the book? Will there be a book - without prints that is available for less?

    Thanks for the heads up.

    Best,

    That's a little steep for me right now but I'd love to see one some day. It looks like a very narrow, tight market, I wish I could be a member of that club.

    Right, Curt. How about a non limited paperback without prints for $50 or $75? =)

    Honoring someone with 2500 dollars book is good but I buy Weston and Adams books with pictures for 50 dollars. By this way they honor me.

    Uhhggg, I'm glad it's being made but wish there were a lower end option - or at least a way to read the essays. I'm assuming there are essays based on the following line:
    "24 Black and White Laser Fultone Reproductions 144 pages".

    Thanks for the info, Merg!

    I recently checked with Carol Williams and she said that at the present time they plan to only offer the book as a Limited Edition in conjunction with a print.

    The book was released at the gallery December 16, 2011, on the centennial of Brett's birth. It is an elegant book, authored mostly by those who knew Brett for a very long time. It is, in every sense a tribute, with keen insights by those who knew Brett and were personally touched by the association.

    It is not a book of his work, rather of the person. What is of particular interest to me, is the opportunity to read from those who knew Brett before he entered my life in 1949. Another gem of a publication from Carol Williams at Photography West Gallery.
