My Polaroid book "Omoide" is out...

...and can be browsed through from the beginning to the end here.

It's a homage to Japan, as well as Polaroid cameras and peel-apart film (100% FP-3000b). Grainy, gritty and contrasty as usual, but this (for those who are used to my "The Japan book" and "9289") has much better and higher contrast paper, which renders rich blacks and shiny whites. Take a look.

Are these the trade books? Standard or economy printing? I like quite a few of the images

Yes, trade book. Standard, not economy. I held myself from sharing this "news" until I myself received and could assess the first copies of the book. Now that I did, I can honestly say that both the paper and the print are beautiful. A hundred times better than the b/w trade books that Blurb offered 2 - 3 years ago, when I made my previous books.

Excellent book, Andrea!

I love the photos; they remind me of my time living in Tokyo and exploring the surroundings. Definitely bring back the omoide for me. :-)

thank you!

Where do these ship from? Would love to pick one up. I have spent my photography career (until 18 months ago) in japan. One idea I had was to take my recently acquired Mamiya Press with some peel apart on my next trip (September). Then realized what the prices for Fujifilm peel apart is now. Ugh -- not doing that. I hate Fujifilm sometimes.
