PhotoLA and Errata News Update...



In the service of shameless self-promotion...an Errata News update:

I had a great time at PhotoLA where the Errata books were very well received. It was a pleasure to connect with so many people including: Alan Valencia, Lawrence Barth, Jim Goldberg, Larry Sultan, Ken Schles, Oliver Woods, Steve Klug, Todd Hido, Chris Pichler, Bertrand Fleuret, Mike Slack, Charlotte Cotton, Mark Forker, Christianne Dearborn, Andy Adams, Andrew Hetherington, Susan Burnstine, Ed Templeton, Ray Barbee, Alex Worman, Leslie Awender, Eric Greco, Lee Kaplan, Amber Terranova, Paul Berlanga, Dan Shepherd, Susan Ehrens and many, many more. Thank you to all who bought books and supported not only Errata but Schaden.com.

I owe a huge thank you to Markus and Nina of the Schaden crew who made the trip a blast even though they refused to let me go swimming in the heated pool at their luxury digs in the Hills. Schaden.com in Germany now has a healthy stock of the Errata books so if that's your local store, go get 'em.

The series is also now available at The Strand Bookstore in New York City and they are priced at $31.95 which is 20% off list price. That is damn near what I originally wanted the books to cost in the planning stages so take advantage. The Strand Bookstore is at 12th street and Broadway in Manhattan.

The Strand Bookstore will also be hosting a launch party event for Errata Editions on February 19th. Present will be Chris Killip (In Flagrante) and John T. Hill (American Photographs) for a book signing. Stay tuned for more info as the date draws closer.

We are also proud to have been named on three Photoeye Magazine "Best Books of 2008" lists by Martin Parr, Gerry Badger and Andrew Phelps.

Errata books were also four of the ten bestsellers at Photoeye Bookstore for the week ending 01-09-2009

The limited editions are down to about 40 sets in case there are any fence-sitters out there biding their time. Once they're gone, they're gone for good.

please don't let this blog become just a billboard for errata.

Do I have your permission to occasionally mention what I am doing since I basically spend most of the time writing decent content for free?

Please let me know ASAP OK?

PS: We already took out ad space on billboards in Paramus, NJ.

Personally, I only want to hear about Errata Editions and its world famous CEO Jefferson Ladd.

The rest I can live without.

keeping us abreast of any developments in British street photography would also be appreciated....

Cary said...

Right on! I think a lunchtime walk up to Strand is definitely in order.

oh no, not the Strand. Those of us who bought the limited editions won't be able to bring them in, much less our original copies of the books.

Errata EVERY TIME

Vincent Borrelli said...

that's Steve 'Klug' (erratum)... one of the nicest people I know.

Jeff Ladd said...

I'll have to see but maybe I can arrange that the Strand allow outside Errata titles into the event since they are noticeably different editions.

We are also setting up something in March at Howard Greenberg Gallery during AIPAD so those that miss out here can get stuff signed there too.

Stuart Alexander said...

Why not set up out in the street, or in Union Square, so anyone who wants to can have whatever it is they want signed... baseballs, beer bottles, empty paper cups...

It's a Free Concert from here on out... said...

I would like Chris Killip to sign my arugula and maybe a peanut butter cookie or two....

verninino said...

Congratulations Jeff!

In the worst economy in generations you become an "overnight" publishing magnate. Whodathunk?

My sole regret about buying your books: not getting you to sign them immediately.

Wayne said...

thanks for the update. any suggestion about where to look at/buy your books in San Francisco, CA?

Am I getting this right? So Jeff's allowed to share his interest & knowledge with the world, but he's not allowed to discuss his own publications. I don't think many of us would be able to get our hands on copies of the Atget or Evans titles without his hard work.

Adam B. Bell said...

Just picked them up the other day. They look great. A fantastic idea and beautiful presentation. Congrats!

Jeff Ladd said...

Wayne,

The books will be around SF. I know its not SF but Arcana in Santa Monica will have some soon. Probably SFMoMA will at some point stock them too.

I hate to announce such things as I would rather people purchase form local booksellers but I am actually excited that they are on Amazon for $26.00.

Jeff Ladd said...

Thanks Adam...I hope someday we get to meet in person.

Roy said...

Here in the UK, I've had them in my Amazon 'saved items' for some time, ready to purchase on their release.
Amazon UK is now saying
"Currently unavailable.
We don't know when or if this item will be back in stock." and no price is listed any more.

So I just ordered them from Strand...

Even with the appalling exchange rate they work out at around the same price as Amazon UK, including air shipment from the US.

Anonymous reminds me of a book publishing workshop hosted by photoalliance in S.F. two years ago. About a 100 paying customers wanting to make a book of whom about 15% had bought someone else's book in the previous year. Think the blog is swell, and as for promoting errata, take Zero Mostel's advice in The Producers. Do it and do it loud. Looking forward to seeing the physical books.

Jeff Ladd C.E.O said...

I will probably mention Errata a couple times a month. Those that can't deal with it should work it out with yer therapist.
