We just got our first delivery of books by Raven Art Studios and we are SO excited.
Out Here is a gorgeous photographic and poetic view of the Steens Mountain area of Oregon, with photographs by Roger Dorband and poems and drawings by Ursula LeGuin. It’s so, so beautiful. It’s $35 and all our copies are AUTOGRAPHED! Ursula LeGuin is nominated for the Oregon Book Award for Out Here!
Blue Moon Over Thurman Street, also a collaboration between LeGuin/Dorband, is a poem to Thurman Street in Portland. Written and photographed in the mid-1980s, it captures the spirit of a place as a microcosm of the whole: of history and change within a city, and within the country. The photographs are stunning (and feature some awesome 80s fashion), and are accompanied by writing, interviews, poems, and reflections by LeGuin. Amazing. Also autographed, and we have four of the last copies in existence—it’s almost out of print, and won’t be reprinted. $25.
The Rogue, Portrait of a River, by Roger Dorband, is a photographic journey down the Rogue River, documenting all its changes along the way. Dorband narrates it with poetic musing on his own connections to, and emotions around, this river and its wildness as well as its use by people. A lush, beautiful book.
Come and get ‘em!!! These books are soooo lovely. ALL ARE AUTOGRAPHED. Did I mention that?
