Book Launch!

Village Books is proud to announce the release of A Higher Perspective: Aerial Photography of the Pacific Northwest by local photographer Tore Ofteness. It is the latest publication from Chuckanut Editions, the Village Books publishing imprint that brought you Nooksack Wanderings, Haunted Fairhaven, Geology of the San Juan Islands, and Murder in the Fourth Corner.  

This stunning collection showcases the work of  Ofteness, who has made a career of capturing the beauty of the Pacific Northwest from an angle few are able to enjoy —  the bird's-eye view. Taken from helicopter and airplane, these incredible images span from the frosted peaks of the North Cascades, to various towns and cities throughout Western Washington, to the serene shores of the San Juan Islands. We hope you enjoy A Higher Perspective even half as much as we enjoyed selecting photographs from Tore's impressive portfolio. If you know anyone who doesn't think the the Pacific Northwest is one of the most beautiful places on Earth, just show them this book; they're sure to see the error of their ways.

Join us in welcoming Tore to the Village Books Reading Gallery in Fairhaven as he presents a slide show of his work. Since beginning his freelance photography career in 1978, aerial photography has become his specialty area, having received several awards, notably a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Professional Aerial Photographers Association, International and a Bellingham Mayor’s Arts Award in 2014. Come get your copy of A Higher Perspective autographed by the artist himself!
