Another Book Cover -

"Milton Slough Walk (Book Cover)"
manipulated digital photograph & graphic design by Mick Mather
I suppose today's post is fitting for the day, All Fools Day, even though this isn't a joke. The book itself doesn't exist, yet, and therein lies the connection to this infamous April day. The cover art is quite real and, having recently completed the Milton Slough Walk, is only waiting for me to push through and complete the required number of image manipulations to make this into the coffee table book it strives to be. I plan to make this limited edition book available at $25 US (plus shipping) sometime in the next few months ... more info to come.

Fantastic news! Any chance you'd share more of the process with us? Like you did with the sculpture proposal? Nosey of me I know:)
As for the cover...they say never judge a book by it's cover however I am not sure that actually applies to books? In any case I would judge this as one worthy of being picked up...

Well, I haven't yet decided whether to do this myself or have it done at a printing shop. If the latter, Lulu and any number of other online book printing outfits would be the way I'll go.

You're more than welcome ... it's time that I started pulling some of my projects together in a new form. Now, how to go about selling these? That's another question.
