So does the Barnes & Noble in Union Square, New York City, the largest B&N in all of Manhattan and two of my local bookstores near me in Brooklyn.

    You are most definitely in the article on page 57; to quote it ..."I put a message on the Large Format photography forum and I got a reply from David Spivak at Focus publishing." followed by your website.

    Kudos to you for publishing this Rabbi's work. Its excellent - the images in my opinon of the (hard) copy magazine are reproduced well, but I am betting your published version is even better.

    Best regards
    Don

    Simmons told me verbally that I wasn't in the article and that I was never mentioned. He made very clear to me that I wasn't in any way mentioned in the article. Wow. I'm just stunned by this.

    Printing the Rabbi's work was a no brainer -- it's simply amazing work.

    I hope you are stunned in an appreciative way. Either Simmons has a heart (which I believe to be true)... or he is a lousy editor and forgot to cut that sentence out.

    Given that challenge, I went back and reviewed the whole thread. You are correct... a simple yes or no was all that was needed.

    But... I missed something in the 93 replies: what was your answer?

    For the record, Simmons denies the veracity of this.

    Those threads "did you receive your issue of View Camera" predictably appear here almost every two months, and do not accomplish much. As not everybody is aware of, Simmons doesn't post here anymore so at this point it isn't fair nor useful to use the forum to air grievances about View Camera. As I have already wrote, email largformat@aol.com.

    This thread is now closed. In the future, such threads will be moved to the Lounge.
