Now that Christmas has passed, I can be a bit more vocal about my latest creation since those who received it as a gift won't have had their surprise taken away by a post.
Tattered and Lost: The Quiet Art of Reading is a book that came about during a dinner conversation when reading became the topic of discussion. Since the future looks questionable for finding vintage snapshots with the advent of everything being digital, and so few people getting actual prints made, I wondered what would happen to images of people reading actual printed material. Will the future be just shots of people staring at antiseptic digital devices? Will photos of people actually holding printed material become a novelty? The hunt was on for a new category; I do so love categories. I love to immerse myself in a subject. This was a really joyous one to collect with most photos from the U. S., but Germany, France, England, and Japan are also represented.
If you love reading, appreciate the time you spend reading, and recognize that there is a certain beauty in the act of reading, then I think you'll enjoy the vernacular photographs in this book.
The book is available at Amazon and CreateSpace.
