Home... 2021 Sonoma County Calendar.... Retail Products... Stock Photos..... Janover prints..... Bio....



Unfortunately 3/4 of the remaining hardcover Sonoma County picture books ended up in this pile of destroyed publications in the February 2019 flooding.

Hopes had been to come out with a new series of picture books starting last fall…. Then the Kincade fire.... and now a world-wide pandemic...... just outrageous the setbacks. So all new publishing other than the 2021 calendar are on hold for a while, need to sell the existing inventory I was able to save from the flooding last year.

So while between full size picture books available for the holidays, the details of the previous hardcover book will remain here as it was a massive labor of love effort... and now I guess a bit historical with so many disastrous changes over the last four holiday seasons here in the county.... which itself was produced in the thick of the 2009-2011 recession!!


This 104-page hardcover book featured a dazzling array of gorgeous photos representing the heart and soul of Sonoma County.

104-pages, regular retail is $26.95, 12" x 9" hardcover format.
