Boards Photobook 2012 & Print Auction

As you may know, for the past 3 years I have taken part in the Boards Photobook, which is a book made up from submissions by members of the photography forum. The book has been produced by Shakespeare Books (Ireland) and is to raise funds for the Santa Strike Force. This years book is really wonderful and as an added bonus 60+ of the photographs from the book are now up for auction.
