I can’t afford it, and can’t even get it delivered, but that is what my parents house and a credit card are for, right? Now I have something to look forward to in a year or two when I return to the US.
I placed my payment on the 22nd of June and am very much looking forward to receiving this cool publication!
Do you good Little Brown Mushroom people have any estimate of how long it may take to find its way to my humble abode in the outskirts of Melbourne, Australia?
believe if I say that I’m a long time fan of yours, but that I’m very annoyed bit limited edition stuff in general.
Frankly speaking I don’t see the point with printing only few copies if more people would like to have one, and then make everybody rush in anxiety not to risk to arrive too late.
Then we find the book on sale on amazon at 200+ bucks, but what’s the point?
Is this fuelling the artist’s fame?
Or is this just putting 200 bucks into someone’s pockets at the expenses of the 1001th poor boy who really wanted to get it for his pleasure but wasn’t fast enough?
I don’t understand.
As artists, especially making easily reproducible works of art, why don’t you want to favour the genuine passion of photography lovers instead of the greedy limited edition collectors’ slightly neurotic spirit?
Won’t you feel better to know that your book sold 30.000 copies and made 30.000 happy instead of knowing it sold 1.000 and that many of them are just puzzled to wait for the best timing to sell it away and make a ridiculous profit?
Well, take care my friends, all the best,
