Another Book

I've put another book on my shelf.  One of my own this time and one that surprised me in how much I enjoy it.  The images are all in color which is a change for me and I'm quite happy with it.  If you click on the book you can flip through some pages via my Blurb book site.  It's a nice 12x12", coffee-table sized book and the prints came out just as I wished.  Blurb did a good job on this one. 
The title comes thanks to Cedric Canard, a regular follower who provides gracious commentary on my posts. I had once complained to him that I really didn't see any themes in my work and he made the perceptive leap to, "Well, randomness can be a theme also."  So, thus was born a title, Random Acts of Color
It's unfortunate that it's so expensive to print single copies or I'd try to sell them.  Price breaks start at 10 which doesn't help so I stick with vanity copies for my own shelves.

I enjoyed paging through the book and think you did a really nice job. What's most important about any book is if you are happy with it. Blurb has done a half dozen for me and they have turned out just fine. And, yes print on demand is pricey but when it goes on our shelves, well worth it.

Nicely done, Joe! You may do more B&W than color, but you're very skilled in both, as the book shows. And I really like that title. Glad you found the inspiration from Cedric.

I am very happy to have played a tiny part in this most attractive book. Glad I was of help :)

There isn't a single photo in your book that doesn't hold its own against any of the others. A rare treat in such an extensive work. Not only masterful photography but delightful conceptualisation as well. I tip my virtual hat to you Joe. Very well done.

Very Nice Joe! I particularly like those images of old buildings, signage and decrepit objects from past. And I love the quote by David Foster Wallace on Page 52.

I will get one someday. I always liked your "Artist In Residence" series and idea.
