Second Edition of ‘i – The Strength and Flexibility of Women’ now available!

December 2, 2015

Council Oak Books and Icon Imaging are excited to announce that we have completed the printing of the Second Edition of ‘i – The Strength and Flexibility of Women’!

 

Over the last couple of months we have been going back and forth with revisions to the original book, to make this Second Edition, even better!  During the process we decided to leave the size, cover and paper type/weight the same as the original book, as we received positive feedback from the original book owners.  However, there were revisions to be made both inside and out, with the addition of a dust jacket over the image wrapped hard cover, exchanging 15 images, and a couple formatting changes.

 

The Second Edition of the book is now available online for purchase at Amazon.caBarnes & NobleChapters/Indigo, and a several others sites.  A partial list of where you can purchase the book online is posted below.

 

If you see the book available on another site not posted below, please send us the link, so we can update our site.

 

To date: We have donated $500 to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation, with an expected donation of another $500 or more at before the end of 2015.

SUPER FANTASTIC NEWS – NEW BOOK PUBLISHING DEAL!

August 26, 2015

As I sit in the airport waiting for my flight to Las Vegas/Salt Lake City, I can’t help but smile about the super fantastic news we have to share.

 

After many years of hard work on our yoga inspired book project, ‘i – a book about the strength and flexibility of women’, and after months of talking with publishers that approached us and negotiating the best possible deal, ‘i’ has been picked up by one of the largest independent book publishers in the USA for production and distribution!

 

There will be a few image changes from the original edition we did a little over a year ago, but for the most part it will be the same book; being printed by the same wonderful company, Friesens that printed the first edition.

 

The new edition of ‘i’ will be in book stores throughout the USA in stores like Barnes & Noble and online at Amazon; in Canada at various location like Chapters/Indigo and will be out in time for the Christmas. There is also a vey good possibility that the book could be distributed in Australia and Europe.

 


Agency Represented

August 20, 2015

The good news keeps on coming…

 

The past couple weeks we have had numerous requests from around the globe for articles and image licencing from our yoga inspired book ‘i – a book about the strength and flexibility of women’.  All these requests have taken a lot of time away from other client requests to negotiate terms.   So, after being approached by a couple of agencies, we have decided to sign an agreement with and agency which will represent Icon Imaging and license 12 images from the book for use on the internet and printed publications.

 

This will allow Icon Imaging to focus on creating more great images for our many existing  and new clients.

 

We look forward to seeing all that our new representation has to provide!
