I have to add my voice to the chorus on this one. The book's a beauty with
lots of great pics.His fall workshops will concentrate on the approach in
the book.

Due to some last minute scheduling difficulties, there are a couple of
spaces in Ian's fall tour schedule. West Coast locations are possible the
weekend of September 9th or the end of October. East Coast/ Midwest
locations would work the end of September/ beginning of October. Anyone
belonging to an organization that would be interested in hosting a workshop
may contact me off list and I will send you the details.
