Book #3, Onomasticon progresses

I participated in Photolucida here in Portland last month and unexpectedly debut the newest book prolix to a number of reviewers and participants over the weekend. We were all fortunate to experience the Indie Photobook Library as well. So many fantastic books that represent both the history and resurgence of self publish in the world of photography. I will be submitting onomasticon to the IPL in the coming month.

I have published pages for the first three official books. No more images of maquettes! More to come. Enjoy and keep checking back. *ian
