PLEASE READ UNTIL THE END BEFORE ORDERING YOUR BOOKS!
"Imagine a book that is shot on just one day from all over Melbourne where you interview as many people as possible and you have gorgeous photos inside but it's just from the one day".
That is a direct quote from my notes, it was written on the 25th of October, 2017. I knew straight away that it would be the concept behind my second book! The next six months became all about this one day. Somehow, I had the 6th of April penciled in from very early, and that's the day that this book was shot!
So it was on the 6th of April that I got up at 4am and went to the city to begin what would become an amazing adventure! I shot from sunrise to sunrise... 6.37am to 6.38am the following day and didn't sleep a wink. I met and interviewed 70 people and was able to capture some amazing photos. I was lucky enough that Melbourne's fickle weather played along and I had four seasons in the one day, which is perfect for a book about Melbourne!
Some of the stories I heard made me cry, some made me laugh. Many of the stories inspired me. I have also added in some interesting facts about the places I photographed. I learnt so much while writing this book and I am sure you will too when reading it!
What you get!
So here it is! A gorgeous 200 page, hardcover coffee table book named "24 HOURS IN THE LIFE OF MELBOURNE". I see this book as a kin of time capsule of Melbourne of 2018 that can be looked back on in years to come. Now, very importantly, the first amazing Humans who get the book in the presale, will also receive a print from the book as a thank you present from me! This is valued at $20 and it's entirely free! The gorgeous cover was designed by my amazing designer, Grace West!
This year you once again have the opportunity to get your name or someone else's published in the book! #BESTPRESENTEVER! Once again this opportunity is limited to how many people fit on the page! Last year it was so incredible to watch people find their name and see the smile spread across their face. I even had people film their loved ones finding their name on Christmas morning and breaking into tears! All of this touched my heart so much and I am so honoured that I can include you all again in this book. You get to include one name, or family name (eg: The Smiths) per book purchased. I am so sorry but I can't include messages. Please enter the name (first name and surname) you would like in the book into the "special instructions for seller" box as you're checking out. I have added a photo below for reference.
If you would not like your name in the book, please put the words, "No name". If nothing is entered into the box, I will automatically include the name of the buyer.
There is also the option to purchase a Limited Edition Print. These prints have a limited run of 52 and will be signed by me. The size of the prints is 8"x10" or 20cmx25cm and will never ever be printed again! You can choose this option in the drop down menu as well.
Please note that the books will be arriving in late October/early November 2018, perfectly in time for Christmas!
Postage - please be sure to choose the right option
You may choose to pick your book up from Melbourne CBD or to have it posted to you for $10. Please select the option you would like from the drop down menu above. If you choose pick up, you will receive an email from me when the book is ready to collect!
P.s please note books can not be posted internationally. If you're overseas and would like a book please contact me directly and we will sort it out :-)
My dream was always to have a book in The National Library Of Australia, I can't believe that soon I will have two in there! I couldn't of done this without all of you. Thank you so very much!
