Dutch photographer Thijs Heslenfeld (pictured below) has published Hot – Life in the Australian outback, a photographic book due out on 9 November. The self-published book follows “Cold – Sailing to Antarctica“. The book was printed by art printer Veenman, Rotterdam, on Hello Silk, Muncken Lynx and GoMatt paper, and is available worldwide via the internet. ‘Cold’ made it to one of the best selling Dutch photobooks in 2008 – with sales to over twenty countries. A special limited edition, available by pre-order until 24 September, comes signed by the photographer and with sand from the Australian outback.
Pictured here are two mating beetles, captured on film in the Simpson Desert, on the exact spot from which the sand in the limited edition is taken.
