Hello and welcome to my Sunday Recommendation. Thanks for joining me. Every week I read great wildlife and nature books, stumble upon engrossing websites and hear wonderful new music. This is my chance to bring you carefully curated recommendations of all the best I’ve experienced – every Sunday. If it’s folk, or independent, or about wildlife, nature or Orkney, I may love it, and so may you.
An Orkney Triptych Book 2
Erland Cooper and Alex Kozobolis
Erland Cooper is a talented musician whose work I’ve bought in all its guises. With Alex Kozobolis he’s currently producing a series of three small books of photographs. I reviewed the first of the triptych in my Sunday Recommendation #23
The second in the series is out now and is both more confident and more personal. There are landscapes, seascapes, portraits, interiors and plenty more images taken through apertures.
There’s a pleasing mixture of image orientation and the balance and interaction between images on opposing pages is well thought through. There’s clearly a conscious and balanced design rather than a random arrangement of images.
It’s openly a book which has been produced with love. And that makes all the difference.
Book 2 is available from Erland Cooper’s Bandcamp page here. It’s a limited edition of 100, so do hurry and grab one of the last remaining copies.
That’s it for this week. I’ll be back with more recommendations of things you might adore next Sunday. In the meantime, I wish you a great week. Keep safe, everyone.
