People always bring cool stuff to share while at the show. Lin brought this pre-production copy of A Sure Defense: The Bowie Knife in America from the Arkansas History Museum in Little Rock by Bill Worthen (then the museum director-now retired) and Mark Zalesky (editor of Knife Magazine (correction) and Bowie knife expert). I photographed over 100 antique Bowie knives for this book, on location in the museum basement with the assistance of Mark, Lin and museum staff. The book will be available for purchase @ $69.95 (clarification) from the museum and through Knife World Books (clarification) after December 4, 2017.

Foldout of an exhibition folder that is over 6 feet long when open. One must think of it as a finger guillotine when o-so-carefully opening it.

Thank You for the heads-up!:thumbsup:
As I live in Europe I couldn't visit the the museum and I have waited ever since for the release of this book.
The book arrived today and it is way over my highest expectations.
The photos are fantastic, giving almost a 3D impression.
A Big Thank You to all those of You who made this project possible!

Best Regards

Mikael,
Thank you. Wow! I also just received mine and am blown away by the quality! The Historic Arkansas Museum in Little Rock should be praised for their brilliant exhibition and this companion ‘catalog’ which together form a most ambitious and worthy project. I was honored to be a part of such a pumped-up and dedicated team.
PS: Photographer’s secret - take the book over to a window and view the knife images under daylight conditions for the the full visual impact.
