"A veritable cornucopia of visual delights, this book has it all!" says Frank's mother about "Simple Gifts". "A tapestry of beautiful images, every page a surprise!" says Frank's wife. Can they both be right? Decide for yourself.

Ninety-nine color images culled from over thirty years of perception, this book brings together some of Frank's favorite works, old and new, for the first time in a single volume. "No photographic library should be considered complete without one" says Frank.

Seriously folks, do yourself a favor and check it out!

Great stuff! Love your vision!

You'll be sad to know that Santa Fe County leveled Tiny Town last year.

The first time I looked at "Simple Gifts" last week I thought it was great. I have looked at it three times since then and it keeps getting better. I'm putting it on my Christmas want list right now.
