Hello, everyone! I’m delighted that at last I can announce a project I’ve been working on for a year and a half – my new book, “Vintage Roses”, a 240-page book of my rose photographs, was released a few weeks ago in London! I worked with a wonderful team at Pavilion Books and with garden writer Jane Eastoe. I took the photographs in so many locations – the States, England, Europe and South America – and they represent many beautiful, romantic varieties, including 24 David Austin roses. You can imagine that working on this was such a joy, culminating in me being able to present a copy to David Austin himself recently! Here are a few of the interior pages:
The planning, travel, shooting, editing and production of the book were a tremendous investment in time over the last year, so in case you were wondering why I haven’t been around here as much as usual, this is one of the reasons. :) As always, I appreciate you joining me on this journey. It would not be nearly as rewarding without you!
The book is currently available on amazon.uk, waterstones.com and in bookstores throughout the UK. And I’m very happy to say that it will be released in the US in January! I’ll keep you updated when it is available for pre-order.
Hoping you all had a great summer and are enjoying a beautiful autumn. And on the Paris front, more book news coming soon!
Happy Holidays, my friends! I do hope you are well and enjoying this festive season. I’m quite late with this but have had many inquiries about my 2016 calendars so I thought I’d share them quickly with you here, including three Paris calendars and a new botanical one.
Available here. Newly this year, all three of the above calendars are available in two sizes: 4″x 6″ and 5″ x 7″.
Also new this year is a collaboration I did with the wonderful publishers, Brush Dance, featuring 12 of my images in a 12″ x 12″ wall calendar. It’s available anywhere fine calendars are sold but I also have a small quantity in my shop and every one sold through there will be accompanied by a 5″ x7″ print of a brand new image of Paris that I took just a few weeks ago. Available here.
Another collaboration with Brush Dance is this new, blank (lined) Paris journal, also available in stationery stores and in my shop here.
Thank you for hanging in there while I’ve been traveling and working on some major projects the past nine months. I’ll be able to reveal more very soon and I hope you’ll love it all! In the meantime, check back tomorrow because I have a huge treat for you!
