Finally -- A book project is finished.
I have had several fits and starts on writing a book on toy camera photography, and while I do plan on finishing it, another project has gone to completion. Recognizing that my work with Polaroids was about done due to the discontinuation of the film, I put together about 80 of my favorite Series 600 and SX-70 produced images into a book.
A Polaroid Elegy - My last year with a Polaroid camera - is now available on Blurb. Culling images to keep the book down to a manageable size and price was the hardest part. It's also the culmination of a year with the SX-70 camera, and one that I wish I had taken to using many years earlier. The paperback and hardcover prices are pretty reasonable, and take a look online. Once I have used up my last few packs of Polaroid 600 film, that's it. No more. I'm reserving the last two packs for a special project, whatever that might be.
Edited: Here are the books, and my now-broken SX-70 camera!
