When we launched our new publishing arm, Ormond Yard Press, we were taking a step into the unknown. Would you go for the idea of ultra large format limited edition photography books on niche subjects within the rock & roll genre, presenting images in their entirety across double page spreads?
Well, the eagle has landed, books are hitting doormats around the globe, and the answer so far is a resounding "Yes". The feedback from the first clutch of customers to receive their Born To Run Revisiteds has blown us away. In particular we loved this photograph that Jim from Marietta, Georgia sent us of him with his book. That is the smile of a satisfied man. As he put in his note, "received the package yesterday and I am loving it!" One really important thing that this photograph of Jim hammers home is the sheer physical scale of these books. They really are like nothing you will have seen before.
We’re posting reviews on our blog as they come in – http://ormondyardpress.tumblr.com/

The book arrived safe and sound on Friday and I had it wrapped and under the tree before my wife got home. She opened it today and was absolutely "blown away." I didn’t look at it beforehand so my first viewing was when she opened it. All I can say is that it is a wonderful piece of work. You, Mr. Meola, and everyone involved should be proud of what you have created. This is something we will always treasure. We are huge Bruce Springsteen fans so this means a lot to us.I thank you for making this happen and for adding so much to our holidays this year. All our best to you, William G, Virginia USA
Your "Born To Run Rev" book is awesome! Guido H, Italy
Took delivery of the above last week, and I have to say I’m thrilled with the content, format, and quality! A superb initial publication from Ormond Yard Press. I await with interest your next edition, trusting that now you have set the benchmark it will be in the same ‘ class leading ‘ bracket ? Ray C, Warks, England
