AlaskaRange_Case_Book

Limited edition version. Only 150 copies will be printed!

Super excited to reveal the limited edition version of the book. Only 150 copies of this version will be printed and they are going fast! This book also comes with the print, Middle Triple Peak, 2015. This image will only be available with the book. Once the edition is sold out, the image will be retired, never to be printed again!

If you want one of these awesome collector books, consider pre-ordering one. Many of them have already been purchased (through our Kickstarter campaign and directly from me). I cannot guarantee any will be left when the book becomes available in late October.

Amazing ice and Mount Hess and Deborah.

Amazing ice and Mount Hess and Deborah.

Thanks to everyone for all your support, it was an amazing process.

Here are some statistics:

89 backers

$15,505 raised

172% funded (percentage above our minimum of $9,000)

The video was played 988 times.

So now what?

I have made my initial selection of 200 images that has been sent to the Mountaineers Books. They have begun the layout and design process and will make their initial selection of images. I will visit them in Seattle in a few weeks where I will help with the final image selection and also give my input on the design and layout.

From there we will continue to hammer through design ideas, ruthlessly edit the essays and work on the maps. I will make the final tweaks on the selected images. When we have all agreed on a book we all love, it will be sent to the printers. We will get a proof first, this is how we will catch any typos, design issues and poorly reproduced images.

Once the proof is approved the book will get printed, bound and sent to The Mountaineers Books distribution center in Seattle.

This process will take many months. We plan to see the book on the shelves late summer, 2016. This is when we will ship all the books to the backers of the Kickstarter campaign.

This blog/website will be getting an over haul. Don’t worry, it will not go dormant. There are plenty of peak profiles and images to share, along with photography and wilderness tips. Once the book is printed, this blog/site will be the center of all the action, letting you know about upcoming lectures, exhibits, book signings, workshops and hopefully reviews and awards!

So if you want to stay in the loop, follow the blog!

Thanks again for all your support and for making this long over due tribute to the Alaska Range a reality.

The Writers!

The mighty Mount Hesperus towers over the Revelation Mountains.

The mighty Mount Hesperus towers over the Revelation Mountains.

The Alaska Range project has always been about celebrating one of the great mountain ranges of the world. I have always known that in order to truly do the Alaska Range justice, I would need to collaborate. This book is less about my photographs and more about Alaskans sharing the legendary Alaska Range with the world.

Seven great Alaskans have agreed to write a series of essays on the Alaska Range. Each one has spent a significant time in the Alaska Range and has a great appreciation and love for the mountains, glaciers, wildlife and wild plants that make the Alaska Range so special.

The essayists include:

Art Davidson

Roman Dial

Brian Okonek

Jeff Benowitz

Clint Helander

Verna Pratt

Bill Sherwonit

I am honored to have their words accompany my images.
