Botanica Obscura Folio Sale—Happy New Years!

Lao New Years, that is. The Lao celebrate their New Years or Pbeemai (pronounced pi-mai bi-mai) on April 13th, 14th, and 15th. The 13th is the last day of the old year; the 15th the first day of the new. What is interesting to me is the 14th: Sangkhan Nao or day of no day. April 14th isn’t part of either year, it’s a day of rest and fun. One of the activities is the throwing of water on friends and passersby—something of a purification ritual.

Since this is going to be a bit of a party, I thought I’d put my Botanica Obscura folio on sale for 50% off. That’s right, for the rest of April, the print folios will be priced at $45 instead of their normal $90.

Folio Sale: Last Chance

Folio Sale:

The introductory sale on my Botanica Obscura folio is almost over—January 1st, the price goes up to $90. Take a look at the folio in detail in my store here or in my Facebook store here. This has been one of my favorite projects so far—I love how the photographs turned out, and the making of the folio itself was a blast. Take a look! And, if you don’t want to purchase the print version, there is a free downloadable .pdf available also—please only use Adobe Reader to view the pdf. Here is the file in my store and here in my Facebook store. Thanks for looking!

Time for a folio sale. I’m sitting here in the SeaTac airport waiting for my 1AM flight to Bangkok. So, I thought I’d send out a reminder of the sale on my Botanica Obscura folio. $15 off until January, 1st.

After a four day delay thanks to one of Vimeo’s processing bugs, my product description videos are up. Take a look at the folio video here. And take a look at the print video here.

Back to hanging out in the airport…

Launching the store has been exciting (and a lot of work!). And I realized that there is nothing like some video to make clearer what exactly is offered in the store. So, here we go, online store product videos! First is a down and dirty video about the free PDF Folio and the Print Folio (the Print Folio has an introductory sale price until January 1st, 2013). You will probably want to click on the gear icon in the lower right corner of the YouTube window and select one of the HD versions:




Next is a the video showing the Plywerk-mounted images and explaining the unmounted versions. You can get any of the nine Botanica Obscura images mounted either way:




Thanks again for looking. Please share these links around, and if you recommend this on Facebook, I’ll buy you a beer the next time I see you! (I’ve only been taken up on this once so far… c’mon, free beer!!)

I’ve been working on a project related to my Botanica Obscura images. And I’m really excited about it… Something about crafting something with your hands in this digital age that is quite satisfying. No, I’m not going to let the cat out of the bag, but if you stay tuned here, there will be what I think is a very cool announcement soon…
