The good news is that the René Herse books are on the way to Seattle. We received a few advance copies, including the Limited Edition with its beautiful slipcase (above). The book turned out even nicer than we expected.
The bad news is that the boat won’t reach Seattle before the holidays. Circumstances beyond our control have delayed the shipping. Airshipping hundreds of 6-pound books also seemed like an unnecessary waste of resources.
We have notified those with pre-orders that the books will be mailed out in early January. To compensate for the delay, we’ll send each customer a 5″ x 8″ ready-to-frame print of an unpublished photo from the Herse archives, if the pre-order for the book is received by December 15. The image will be printed by a professional photo lab on heavy cotton paper. We want to provide you with something special for the Holidays, and this photo will only be available through this offer. Below are a few photos that give you an idea of the Herse archives (a tiny fraction of the thousands of images).
We know that you will be in awe when you do get the book, and we appreciate your understanding in the meantime. If you haven’t pre-ordered your copy yet and would like to place your order and receive a copy of the special print, click here.
