This book was published on January 14, 2023, the 90th anniversary of Stan Brakhage's birth. It can now be purchased from Barnes and Noble and Amazon, and I believe from most bookstores. This book collects my writing on Brakhage over 56 years, from 1966 to 2022, in 35 chapters covering 445 pages. It includes an introduction by P. Adams Sitney, and 56 color scans of Brakhage films, which I made over two decades and selected for this book.
The book has so far received two extensive and highly positive reviews, one by David Sterritt and another by Paul Attard. Both authors, quite perspicaciouly I thought, quote from what are for me the book's key insights, and from both reviews I recognized much of what I most care about. There was also a pre-publication Zoom call in which I introduce the book and Brakhage and discuss it with several film professors.
