Walking Pictures Book
UPDATE • Although we still do not have a firm publication date, work on page layout and selection of images is now in progress. According to the publishers: “The final selection is proving to be a very difficult process. Firstly there are a couple of thousand photographs to choose from. We are trying to have a balance of both the technically very good images as well as those which perhaps tend to be a little more ‘arty’ due to technical issues, but still have a lot of visual interest. We also want to try and include as many different UK locations as possible. Each image is being ‘restored’ digitally, but again we do not want to lose the qualities of the original photo, so this work is being limited mostly to exploring the shadow detail lost when the print was first made. Even so this work is very time consuming. Some images will be shown full page, others closer to actual size. When the design is a little closer to the finished look we will be preparing some sample spreads. If all goes well the book should be published during 2013.”
Courtesy of Easy On The Eye Books, we can show the cover of a forthcoming book devoted to Walking Pictures. Titled Going Home On A Postcard, it tells the story of the trade, but is also full of great images taken between the early 1920s and the 1970s. Work on the title is still in the early stages but the publishers hope it will be released towards the end of 2011. You can go to the Easy On The Eye Books page and learn more.
