"The Sundays of Life" by Bela Doka (with an essay by Evan Mirapaul)

I'm thrilled to report that I have an essay in a new book by Hungarian artist, Bela Doka, called "The Sundays of Life". Bela asked me to publish a letter he wrote asking for support of the book through a limited edition and signed copies. His letter is below. Check it out and let me know what you think of the essay:

Dear friends, dear friends of photo books,

I am very pleased to share the news that German publishing house , Kehrer would like to publish my limited edition photographic album, "The Sundays of Life", as a trade edition, with worldwide distribution.
I need to contribute printing costs toward the edition, which I would like to cover with the sales of the remaining copies of the original limited edition (series of 250).
Each book in the limited edition is handmade, in hard cover and cloth binding, numbered and signed.

In addition, there is a deluxe, boxed edition (Edition of 50) : the book is bound in white goatskin, in a handmade box. If you purchase a volume from this edition on my website, you can select an original Lambda print (24x30 cm) of any photograph, as a token of my appreciation, together with the book.

Every purchase is a contribution towards the next publication. If you are interested in further details, please contact me on my private e-mail address: beladoka@gmail.com. You can also contact me to purchase a copy of the book directly from me, and I am happy to sign with a personal inscription.

wishing you beautiful Sundays,
