tangles, thickets, and twigs ~ fields of visual energy

Twigs - the book ~ sample spreads • click to embiggenMy POD picture book, Tangles, Thickets, and Twigs ~ Fields of Visual Energy, arrived yesterday and, self serving as it may sound, it is an incredible piece of work.

The book - 12×12inch hard cover, 36 pages, with 30 9×9inch color plates (to include 1 visual joke - FYI, even the wife burst out laughing when she saw it) - is my first it's-about-time attempt at organizing / editing my so-called "twig" pictures. Pictures made over the past 7-8 years which have been sitting (languishing?) in my 3,400+ pictures finished picture folder just waiting to be brought to the fore. After viewing the book, I can state unequivocally that it was well worth the time and effort.

As is so often the case, the pictures, when viewed as a body of work, make quite an impression and a very strong visual statement. While each individual picture in the book is, IMO, worthy of consideration as stand alone "greatest hits", when viewed together, they positively sing - musically speaking, all the individual notes come together to create quite a pleasing symphony.

All of that sales spiel said, the book is available for purchase. The price is a moving target - Shutterfly is currently offering a 30% discount which brings the price down from $90.00US to $70.00US. If you're not in a hurry and can wait until Shutterfly offers a 40% discount - mostly likely right after the holidays - the price will be $60.00US (all prices are + shipping).

If you are interested (and who wouldn't be?), email me with your mailing address (so the book can be shipped directly from Shutterfly). I will advise you of current discounts and the book's "market price" before placing the order.

I'd better not let my wife see this. It could turn into this year's "lump of coal"!

Just kidding, Mark. Just kidding. I hope you sell a zillion of them.
