New Orleans Book - Premium Leather-Bound Edition, is Going to Press!!

My "Passionate People & Places of New Orleans" is going to press in time for Hanukkah and Christmas delivery. Melissa (it really does take 2 to make anything worthwhile happen) and I returned yesterday from a leather-hunting expedition with the first beautiful hide that will soon be cut and sewn for the covers. The first time I touched the rugged yet refined hide, I pictured Hemingway walking into a butcher shop in Cuba to select a cut of beef for dinner and a slice of raw hide for a journal he might assemble by hand for a return trip to Paris.

Please visit PassionateNewOrleans.com to learn more and to buy the book.

This brief clip demonstrates the project. More to come as the pages turn of this exciting journey...
