i am a bit of a fan of supporting artists that i *know*, either in real life or through a friend who knows a friend who knows a friend.
about five months ago, through another photographer's blog, i found the work of michelle wilson, a photographer writing and illustrating ( with her own photographic works ) a book.
*a tale of two* is the story of two sisters...
which plays pretty close to my heart right now.
well, i received my book today:), after a few impatient weeks.
michelle, who i do not know in real life, is hysterical. she produced little videos all along the way of the production of her book, keeping her supporters in the loop. her last video was of her adventure mailing out the books, so i knew it was coming!
and the book? it is beautiful and creative.
there were only 500 printed, and the pages feel wonderful and the images are just unique. it is a pleasure to read.
here are a few links for the book and about the journey that brought it to fruition.
i always find it fascinating when people find the way ( or ways ) to bring their passions from the idea stage to reality. and this book is a pretty fab example of this.
it now has a little place of honour in my library if you would like to stop by for a read:).
