Ephemeral Moments.

Ephemeral Moments. Photographs by David H. Gibson. David H. Gibson, Dallas., 2007. Unpaged, 8½x11¾". Limited edition. 3 volumes fitted in a clam shell box, each volume contains 9 Archival Pigment Prints.

Very, very beautiful and evoking ! The images of mist, fog, water and fire are lent a magical and other-worldly quality in these wonderful photographs. I also really like the craftsmanship and work that's gone into producing the book:

"The book is printed and crafted in our studio using the Epson 9800 using Epson Ultrachrome K-3 inks on Hahnemuhle Photo Rag 308. After printing we spray the prints with 3 coats of Hahnemuhle Protective Spray. The accordion books are fabricated using 100% cotton rag mat board for the construction of the binding board and clam shell boxes. The adhesives are Bienfang Color Mount and PVA glue. The mat board is covered with 'Mohair' a book binding fabric. The fabric is produced by World Cloth Co. Ltd. in Japan."
