It was starting to look like April was going to be a busy month, I just had no idea HOW busy. I have already been one of the jurist for the International Photo Book Competition and I just published our results on The PhotoBook journal. The next phase of this competition award is that I will be providing two curatorial talks during Photobook Independent in two weeks. The talks will not require as much planning as I did for the recent book workshop, which is okay, because I really need the time to prepare everything for the launch of Bluewater Shore. Meanwhile I have a couple more book reviews to complete for two of the winning photobooks, as I already had published two reviews of the books that selected for awards. I would like to complete these other two reviews before Photo Independent, adding to my work load. Like I said, April is turning into a very, very busy month ;- )
Right now I also need to get ready to go on-press at Dual Graphics (Brea) tomorrow for the printing of Bluewater Shore. I am expecting to finalize the exterior colors for the cover, go to print and then I will report about my experience about being on-press later this week. Cool! Then I need to update my earlier post about the ability to pre-order this book with an accurate image of the published book. Probably send out another round of newsletter updates on this photobook as well.
The Introduction to Photo Book Design workshop is now complete but a little more about this in the next couple of days.
