Just finished with the cover — or at least as much as we can do at this point — since the orange cloth won’t be added until after we leave Hong Kong (you can see a mock up of the cover of the French edition in the top right-hand corner of the first photograph below).
So, we end as we began, with yet another detour. We — and all of you — will have to wait another three to four weeks to see a photograph of the final cover, when the first bound copies of “The Suffering of Light” finally reach us back in Brooklyn.
Thanks for all your comments and questions and support during the birth of this most recent book. Rebecca and I are leaving you with one last quote below, which, of course, is about detours.—Alex Webb
“[One’s creative] work is nothing but this slow trek to rediscover, through the detours of art, those two or three great and simple images in whose presence [one’s] heart first opened.” ––Albert Camus
