Christie’s e-catalogue for photobooks

Jack Smith, The Beautiful Book.

I have been trying to strip my days down to the bare basics lately. Printing for some upcoming shows of the Japan work, putting together a new book (more later), teaching a bit, organising 5 days of POC in Salzburg starting tomorrow, and hoping each day to crawl into bed before midnight, loosing entire weeks in the process. I was better at bloging in the winter. The masochistic side of it all is that I have also started a blog for Fotohof, where I am an active member, curator and now, well, overwhelmed blogger.

To put it in Buffet terms, my plate is full and running over onto my serving tray. 

I did get an email today announcing the upcoming Christie’s auction in London on May 19th.

I won’t make it to the auction in person, and I will keep my bidding to myself, but I can tell you which ones would be on my wish list if photographers qualified for a bail-out.

Michael Smith, Landscape 1975-1979

Eugene Richards, Dorchester Days

Bertien v. Manen, A Hundred Summers, A Hundred Winters

the above listed books I have at least held in my hands, something I can’t say about this one which is slated to go for somewhere between 

40,000 and 50,000 $.

I have never used the LARGE setting for font size in blogger, and I have heard one is only allowed to do it once, like putting exclamation marks on the frontpage of your newspaper, so there you go.

The buffet is open...
Buffet is a collection of special editions, book + print sets, artist's books, print/book trades and various interesting ways in which photographers are packaging and selling their work. Some are sold through galleries and publishers, some by the artists. Andrew Phelps
