Within The Frame Giveway: Signed Print Folio

As part of Within The Frame month, which we’re celebrating over here in wild style (My book, Within The Frame, came out 5 years ago. There has been wine, and there’s a good chance there will be again,) I wanted to do a couple giveaways. In part I’m hoping to bring new interest to a book I still believe is important and needs to be read (even though I wrote it), and I’m hoping a few new readers will look it up for the first time, but mostly I want to say thank you. So while I’m also giving away a beautiful leather-bound edition of Within The Frame, of which only two exist, I also wanted to give away some of my work. 2 chances to win.

At the end of May we’ll draw one name from the comments on this post. The person that belongs to that name will get a folio of 8×10’s – a collection of ten of my favourite images from Within The Frame, printed and signed by me. All you have to do is leave a comment. Something as simple as “Yes, please,” or “Count me in!” will suffice. If you’re feeling like increasing the karmic odds, you could also leave a review on Amazon for Within The Frame, or tell your friends to read it, but I’ll leave that up to you.

For making this book the unexpected thing it has become, I’m grateful. Thank you.

Comments are now closed. Winner announced on Friday, May 30/14.

An Armenian-Canadian, Karsh was born in Turkey in 1908, worked most of his life in Ottawa, and died in 2002, leaving behind a lifetime of beautiful portraits of the leaders of […]

Making Within The Frame

The original cover concept I sent the publisher. I’m glad they over-ruled me. Six years ago, I got a phone call from a publisher asking me to write a book. The original author had bailed due to health issues, and they wanted to know if I was interested. I wasn’t, but it got my foot […]

I just picked them up and they’re gorgeous! Custom bound in rich brown goat leather, with black end papers, and silver embossing, […]
