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! :cool: I also pre-ordered the book.

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.

Mine came today. In addition I had ordered both Michael & Paula's Tuscany books and they came in the same box. My Gra-Lab timer was also awaiting me on the stoop. It was like Christmas in July!

It's a plot Aggie. The HLS people have to scan yours as you are on the list of most dangerous photographers. What with waving that spotmeter around and all. Once they detonate it to make sure there are no hidden explosives they will sweep it up into a little tiny box and mail it to you.

Mine has arrived, along with the Tuscany and Madonnia books. (Michael and Paula, mille grazie.) The reproductions are wonderful! I compared them to other EW books I have and they leave them in the dust.

The Tuscany books are also excellent, (but I am biased here,) but I will happily recommend them, it is as close as you can get to having the real print in your hands.
