Their website offers extensive facilities for choosing mounts, frames, etc, if required, together with very effective visualisation tools (i.e. what will it look like on the wall?).

Customers outside North America can also use this facility to buy prints of course, but the prices are in US dollars, and the pictures are printed in and shipped from the USA.

A review by Jeff Meyer of the "Pacific Northwest Iron" book by Nigel Williams (see here) was published by Amateur Photographer magazine (the world's oldest consumer weekly photographic magazine) in their 28th August 2010 issue. Jeff's review stated:
"Following on from his last release, K-scopes, Williams shows his creative flair by tackling quite an obscure subject - the colours and textures within old iron in America's Pacific Northwest region. You're probably thinking 'Huh?' But Williams captures rich colours and textures within the rust. Highly original."
The Amateur Photographer website is here.

A review of the "Pacific Northwest Iron" book by Nigel Williams has been published by Diane Berkenfeld, the editor of the Picture-Soup Photographers Resource. Diane's review included the comment:
"Williams’ obsession for not only detail, but discovering these sometimes hidden industrial subjects and creating photographs that transform these rusted, old, objects into abstract art, is what makes this a unique book."

July 26th 2010 - Special discounts on a special image from the K-scopes Blog
If you're a vintage vehicle enthusiast, and you've enjoyed some of the kaleidoscopic images from the K-scopes book, you may be interested in a unique new image that has just been posted on the K-scopes Blog Website. There are some very particular discounts offered on large prints of this image too - if you're in the know!
To see the image and find out what all the fuss is about, please click here.
July 23rd 2010 - Preview of 'K-scopes' now of entire book
The preview of 'K-scopes' by Nigel Williams has now been extended to display the entire book online. This means that if you want to cheat, you can, because you can look up all the secrets in the back of the book without buying it!! But wouldn't you rather keep hold of the fun by waiting until you get your copy to find out about each kaleidoscopic image and from what it was made?
Some people think that if you can see everything on-line, you have no incentive to buy the book. As a book-buyer myself, I would much rather see the whole book, because that gives me a much better opportunity to make a fully-informed decision about buying. After all, in a bookstore, you can look at the entire book - and you can put it back on the shelf if you don't want to buy it.
So, with this book, now you have a choice - you can look at the whole book if that's your preference, or you can save the secrets until you get your copy! Click here to see the newly-enlarged full preview.
'Pacific Northwest Iron', the latest book from Nigel Williams, also displays the entire book in preview. Click here to view.
July 19th 2010 - Prints now available on canvas

April 26th 2010 - Review of K-scopes book in Amateur Photographer magazine
A review by Jeff Meyer of the "K-scopes" book by Nigel Williams (see here) was published by Amateur Photographer magazine (the world's oldest consumer weekly photographic magazine) in their 1st May 2010 issue. Jeff's review stated:
"Williams has created an intriguing series of images in which he's taken his subject, copied it, flipped and rotated it to create a picture in a style that might be created through the use of a kaleidoscope. This is one of the more unique books we've seen in a while, and some of the subject choices are quite clever. Best of all, in back Williams shows us thumbnails of the original pictures from which he took his subjects to give us a sense of wider context. This book is a clever lesson in always looking closer at the smaller details."

April 19th 2010 - New K-scopes blog
To follow on from the release of the "K-scopes" book by Nigel Williams (see here), we have started a new way of distributing K-scope images. At regular intervals (or every time a new image is created), we will post an image to our new 'K-scopes Blog', where viewers will have an opportunity to comment on it. Every three months or so, we will publish a K-scopes 'magazine', which will contain a selection of the images accumulated in the Blog since the last magazine was published. This way you can build up a K-scopes Library, without spending too much money. You will also have the opportunity to influence, and contribute to, the content of each magazine - because if we put up an image and everybody says "I hate that" - we'll leave it out! But if you make some interesting observations or constructive comments, we could include those!
If you want to be notified each time a new image is posted, you can subscribe to the blog by entering your email address under 'Subscribe to Journal' in the Blog menu panel (not forgetting to hit the 'Go' button!).
April 15th 2010 - Affiliation to The Book Depository
We have become an affiliate to The Book Depository. This is basically because they pay us commission if we send people to their site, who then buy books from them! But we wouldn't do this if we weren't happy to recommend them - they have a vast range, and we have had many years of great service, low prices, and free delivery from them. We've added a link to them on our new books page (buy our books *first* please!), but if you'd like to go straight to them, click on the banner below.
Mar 30th 2010 - New mailing list
We have introduced a mailing list, for folks who are interested in what goes on at Orlogik Books. The mailing list will be used to send occasional newsletters to participants, providing information concerning new book, print or card releases, special offers on products or delivery, etc, etc.
To take part, please enter your name and e-mail address into the panel at the bottom-left of any page on the web-site, and hit the 'GO' button. You can opt out of receiving the newsletter any time you like by entering your name and e-mail address into the same panel, but switching to the 'Unsubscribe' toggle before hitting the go button.
