I will be releasing two new portfolios next week, my Timeless Africa collection of black and white images and my Colors of Africa collection of color images. Each portfolio will contain fifteen (15) hand made prints by yours truly, and will be available in 8.5x11 and 13x19 sizes. The fifteen prints will come in a hand made, linen covered presentation box, and each print will be signed.
Here is a quick photograph from my Colors of Africa portfolio in 13x19"
Each portfolio will have a cover sheet, presentation gloves and all prints are printed on 100% cotton fine art Moab Entrada paper, and the interleaving sheets are Japanese washi paper, which is made from mulberry fibers. Mulberry fibers are a great 'green' paper because the mulberry tree does not need to be cut down to harvest the fibers. After cutting away the fibers, the tree is allowed to grow back.
The 8.5x11" portfolio boxes will sell for $495 plus $50 shipping via FedEx to any destination in the world, and the 13x19" portfolio boxes will sell for $1295 plus $75 shipping via FedEx to any destination in the world. I have only 15 of each size available on hand, and there will be a delay if those numbers are exceeded. It takes up to a month to have these boxes manufactured, as they are made by hand by an artisan.
I will be posting the images in each portfolio box next week.
If you are interested in learning more, please contact me before the full announcement. I am very happy and proud to have these two bodies of work, as I have spent much time working on them in the past 6 years!
