Special Edition: Luminous EverestJan 15, 2019
Luminous Everest has arrived! Here is a first glimpse of the special edition book created for the “Luminous Everest” exhibit at Mountainfilm on Tour Savannah.
Mountains of thanks to so many friends along the trail… Mountaineer and humanitarian Pasang Lhamu Sherpa Akita, book designer Michael Motley, Khumbu guides Lhakpa Gyaljen and Jangmu Sherpa, book binding by fellow Santa Fean Kathleen Loeffler and for being there every single step of the way, my husband Chas Curtis.
The cover is a hundred and fifty mile panorama of the Everest Range wrapping around the interior and exterior.
The book has a hand-stitched binding similar to traditional red thread mala prayer bracelets with the intention that the book elevates and inspires, as does Mt. Everest, which exists in both ice and imagination.
I’m pleased to offer twelve copies of this book at the upcoming exhibit of “Luminous Everest” at Moutainfilm on Tour Savannah this week.
Thuchhi Chhe! (Thank You Very Much in Sherpa)
