    Thank you john..its in the bag!!
    My book is sitting there separated out from all the others...great art needs a voice
    All my years of photographing are coalescing now...the books are what count because they are tactile and accessible but I believe in good printing and paper...content is king though
    That is the mark of the craftman...spmething like 10000 negatives later it's just a means to an end.

    that's great peter !

    congratulations inadvance .. :smile:
    so, you take down this contest then what's next, another one
    until you go head-to head with other book makers in the oktagon ?
    i know the work gets infront of a lot of eyes, do they give you a book offer ?

    ive no idea how these competitions work ... and have only made personal books, never anything
    for mass consumption ( although i sometimes think of going to taco bell, i mean, blurb :smile: )

    If you win you get a publishing deal. If you make the shortlist it travels yo other nook shows in europe. It will be in front of lotd of eyes
    My reason for doing it was to push myself
    Even if you are on the best gallery in the world you are only on the wall for 2 or 4 weeks..books last for ever

    one of the people who won the infinity award this year is a woman who makes books
    https://www.icp.org/infinity-awards/dayanita-singh
    having made books by hand ( 1-offs ) i know the satisfaction there is from making them ..

    It's when/ if it gets picked up for publication that the real hard work begins...

    Is there anywhere we can see any more of the book?
