FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
J.C. Thompson Aims to Benefit New Orleans Artists with Print-on-Demand Availability of "Distance Til Empty: Volume VI" at Lulu.com
ATLANTA, GA —JANUARY 20, 2007— J.C. Thompson aims to benefit New Orleans Artists with the publication of Distance Til Empty: Volume VI in conjunction with Lulu (www.lulu.com), the world’s fastest-growing provider of print-on-demand books.
Distance Til Empty: Volume VI is a collection of photographs taken in and around New Orleans, Louisiana.
J.C. Thompson wrote Distance Til Empty: Volume VI to assist in the restoration of the lifestyle and works of photographers, illustrators, and all visual artists living in the flood damaged regions of New Orleans. He came to Lulu because she wanted to be in full editorial control of the publishing process and found Lulu’s print-on-demand tools to be fast, easy and, most importantly, free; allowing the ability to have as much of the proceeds as possible go to the assistance of those he's working to help, with as little third-party interference as possible. Distance Til Empty: Volume VI is available for purchase on-line at www.lulu.com.
“During frequent visits to New Orleans before and after Hurricane Katrina, I was always spellbound by the art of the city.” said J.C. Thompson. “I realised after being inspired by NOLA for so long, I felt I needed to give something back, especially to the overlooked art scene that thrives in the streets there, even to this day."
