Thank you, I’m always pleased to hear that the book is being enjoyed. I agree, it’s nice to view images in print rather than backlit on a luminescent screen.
I didn’t have a particular image in mind when the book project was decided because it happened gradually over a fairly long period of time. I’d been making prints available from my website for quite a number of years and therefore knew how they looked in print and would naturally make it into the book, but there were many more that I’d posted on this blog and others that hadn’t yet been scanned from the negatives and I was pretty curious to see how they would turn out. I guess for me the most exciting part was to allow the designer (Keiji Terai) to aesthetically present the images and design the format in such a way they would work in juxtaposition to one another on the pages.
