RE: Camera Work

Hi Jeremy:
    Is there any thought about producing an eText? Making the volumes searchable would be a great plus. I totally understand the additional effort involved and will purchase each volume as it becomes available regardless.

I thought I would go ahead and throw a commercial-ish announcement around the alt process network in case anyone missed the previous discussion about Camera Work.

Just to give you a more detailed description of what I'm doing: I was able to gather a set of all 50 issues on loan and am in the process of scanning the issues and creating a digital master set to be uploaded to http://www.lulu.com for reprinting. With the availability of books with high quality (well, offset) reproductions of the illustrations

Seen here:
my main concern is the text, so the books are being printed in b&w to keep the costs down. They will be released in volumes of ~300 pages (which is 3-4 issues depending on individual issue length) with a cost of $19.99/volume.

I am asking you to spend a little bit of money and invest the time to read Stieglitz's Camera Work: Issues 1-4

I do not mean reproductions of just the illustrations, I mean a reproduction of every single page of camera work including the ads. I am trying to get a contact list to email out all of the particulars of what I am doing and the timeline for the project. If you'd like to be included in this contact list just email me off list. I should have a copy of the first 4 issues in hand in about 3 weeks... exciting!

I have somewhere, a very fat softcover book that is just that:
reproductions of  illustrations from Camera Work.  It's in storage
right now so can't look up the publication details, but certainly in
the last 10 or 15 years.
