For the last week I have been watching for a book in the mail.
Early this year I received a message from a publisher in England asking if he could use some of my pictures in a book he was working on.He was working with a retired minister who was writing a book about his travels to Turkey through the years. He needed a few additional pictures and found them on my blog.
I of course gave permission for the use of the pictures and asked for information on how to get a copy of the book. I was interested in the book, and also thought it would be cool to have a copy of a published book with my pictures in it. The publisher said that he would send me a copy as a thank you.
The book arrived in my mailbox yesterday.
The flier for the book says “This new book lets the reader take a paper pilgrimage to these important New Testament archaeological sites in modern day Turkey”.
I have just started looking at some of the sections and the book has some great information and insight into the many different places he has visited in Turkey.
The book has some pictures that I took of Lystra (above), Derbe and Antioch in Pisidia. You can see more pictures from the day that I visited Lystra and Derbe in my post Tells, Tell a Tale.
I was given a nice thank you in the image rights section of the book and a link to my Turkey page was provided for people to see more of my pictures and my thoughts about Turkey.
To me it is just cool that I have some of my pictures in a published book 🙂
