With that in mind, I brought mine to the little show we had last night on Valencia street, to get it signed by friends in the book. It was a little bit strange asking, but I was pleased to get notes from some of my favorite photographers in this lovely picture book.

The pages are too pretty to write on, so we kept signatures and notes to the insides of the covers.

It was strangely satifying, the lingering touch of ink on paper.
