The Leica User Forum Book 2012 is now available on Blurb. £10 from the sale of each book will be donated to the The Association for International Cancer Research.
"This year, we have chosen to restrict the book to the 100 best photographs submitted to the judging panel. The standard of submission was at least as high this year as last time and the panel had an extremely difficult task in choosing the ones for inclusion. Unfortunately, this means that 167 submitted shots did not make the final 100 - we could easily have made two books. However, the 100 chosen are the work of over 60 Forum Members and are a testament to the talented people who contribute so much to the Leica community. 23 different cameras were used in the making of the book, the vast majority of which were Leica's current flagship rangefinder, the M9. Only 13 of the shots were made using film. Once again, the mosaic on the back cover shows all of the submissions."
