Press sheets for the new book arrived a few days ago.

I put together a special signature of images to test the printing of the images in duotone. The press sheets arrived from the printer a few days ago in a very heavy mailing tube. I am pleased to say that the sheets look fantastic— rich, crisp, and with considerable depth to the greys and blacks. 

It is a very exciting time.

Even without the book finished yet, sales are good. Pre-order your copy here:

Peter Braune

Peter Braune, printmaker, taken February 8, 2013

Photography is the easiest medium in which to become competent. Almost anybody with a point and shoot camera can take a decent picture. But while photography is the easiest medium in which to be competent, I think it is the hardest medium in which to have a distinctive personal vision.

Peter Braune runs New Leaf Editions and is a motivating force behind the Biennial International Miniature Print Exhibition or BIMPE.
