October 6, 2011

Checking the proofs.

. . . . . .

I’m thrilled to finally share this news with you —

Over the past 9 months, I’ve been working on a book of my photographs to be published this month by friends Lawson’s Books.

The book is called “Quality of Life”. I can’t wait for you to see it.

Last week we checked the proofs and now it’s off being printed. It will be released very soon in a limited edition of 500.

Lawson’s Books is a new, small publisher out of Edinburgh – my good friends Christophe & Gemma are the brains behind the operation. It has been such a rewarding experience to work on this together, and our collaboration has resulted in a book that feels very meaningful to me.

More details about the release date, the content, the specs, and purchasing information will follow very soon.

(In the meantime, if you own a shop, either bricks-and-mortar or online, and you might be interested in stocking Quality of Life, please send me an email – brianwferry [at] gmail [dot] com. Cheers.)

. . . . . . . . . .

UPDATE: The book will be released on Nov. 2, 2011. You can preview the book and purchase it from that date at the Lawson’s Books website. (Price will be £13 + shipping).
