Like many start-ups, this grew from an idea that was sparked on a whim… then ignited over drinks with a friend while discussing publishing, books and the arts. And although starting my own publishing business was an idea I’d been toying with for some time, it wasn’t until that very moment that this dream offered a chance at reality.
Almost immediately the project picked up momentum and every solution greeted me with a new challenge. But I continued to move forward, working out challenges and adapting by method of trial-and-error. I invested myself completely into bringing the first title to life — a fabulous little photo book, “Less Vegas” by Mauro D’Agati — devoting equal amounts of time and energy by any means I could muster. Of course as the momentum picked up, the project took on a life of its own. So, in order to meet a deadline I’d given myself, I sought out copywriters and designers, printers and distributors and continued with full speed toward releasing “Less Vegas” and realizing my dream.
Wow! and what a journey it’s been!
“Less Vegas” is finally finished and awaiting release. Set to hit stores in April, you can also pre-order your copies here from the AHRENS Editions’ online store.
And now that it’s completed I would like to thank everyone involved in this project. Thank You's go out to my parents for their patience and humor — to my brothers and supportive friends — to Mauro D'Agati for his many contributions and keen attention to detail — to Julia Melzner, our designer, for seeing us through until we were on-press in Iceland — to Elisa Badii for her brilliant ideas and support — to Angela Fama for her savvy web skills in creating this beautiful and elegant website, thank you — to Bruce and Sophie Gilden for their suggestions and encouragement — to Rebecca Kanengiser and Jason Schauer for their creative text editing — to the wonderful people and printers at Oddi in Iceland — to D.A.P. for believing in this project — to all my new and loyal Twitter friends and fans — and a Thank You to anyone I may have forgotten here, and everyone else I met along the way.
