Now and then a book comes along I want everybody to have on their shelf, written by an author I want each one of you to meet. Well, at least in cyberspace I can almost make that happen - it's time to meet Art Wolfe.
We all have our favorite industry icons/heroes and Art's one of mine. In fact, we recorded an episode of "Why?" together last year.
He's got a new book due out in late October and it's destined to be one of the more special holiday gift purchases of the year. Think about it for just a second - we're buried in email and digital communications.
We capture our news and often reading material on a computer, Kindle or facsimile - but Earth is My Witness will be a stunning hardbound book filled with remarkable images capable of transporting each of us to Art's side as he travels the globe. Images you can touch and stare at, almost as if you're looking down the lens barrel in Art's hand!
"Uniquely conceived and undeniably breathtaking, Earth Is My Witness contains a wealth of recent photographs as well as some of the most striking images from throughout Art Wolfe’s widely celebrated career."
I don't usually write about book releases, and I have no stake in this. But like many of you who have met Art, I'm just proud to have worked with him over the years and excited about the release of his new book! Click the cover above to visit Art's website for ordering information and then stay tuned - anticipated delivery at the end of October.
P.S. Happy Birthday Art! (Kind of fun putting out this post on the guy's birthday.)
