Mount Eerie Mount Eerie Pts. 6 & 7

This page is an explanatory supplement to ‚??Mt Eerie pts. 6 & 7‚??, a big white photo book with a record of vaguely corresponding music. The book was published in an edition of 2400 in July of 2007.
The photos were taken all on traditional film. Most of them are on expired 800 speed 35mm color print film with an antique half frame camera. (A Mercury Univex II, to be exact, which was apparently made from surplus 16mm movie camera parts during the depression. The shutter is a spinning disc. Here is a website about it.) Some other photos are taken with a 35mm full frame Leica dbp rangefinder similar to some of these. Then there are some taken on 120 print and slide film with a very old Kodak No. 2 folding cartridge Premo that looks like this and doesn‚??t really focus. The prints used in the book are almost all the ones that got automatically run through the machines when the film was sent off to the plant.
The photos were scanned and laid out and midwifed with the incomparable Aaron Flint Jamison in February & March of 2007 here in Anacortes and a little in Portland. The book is much his. He is the reason for the amazing awful dust jacket and other conceptual braveries like ‚??no words‚??. (His dad suggested this web page.) Flint can be found now editing Veneer Magazine and else where.
It was printed at Hemlock Printers in Burnaby, BC, Canada in May and June of 2007 and delivered back to Anacortes for record stuffing and dustjacketing. (We letterpressed those here because it was a last minute call.)
