My new book: Textures of Ireland

Ireland is a country of color — especially green, in astonishing shades across its rolling countryside.

When you do, you’ll be surprised not to feel the textures in your fingertips, as if they were pressed into the pages in relief.

My new book, Textures of Ireland, shares the best of my black-and-white photographs. You’ll see scenes from Northern Ireland in the region where the show Game of Thrones is filmed, country scenes from Ireland’s rich northern and eastern counties, as well as ruins and modern architecture from cities and towns.

I’m offering my book in two ways: a traditional paper book printed on demand at, or as a PDF. The PDF is the fastest and least expensive way to see my book — but the textures come out best by far in print. I hope you’ll buy a copy today!

    The link for purchase of the book is dead. No indication of how buy the pdf. Bad Monday?

      I’m so sorry! I believe I’ve fixed the link for the paper book — please try again. The PDF link is showing up for me — do you see the PayPal button in the post above?

      I just figured out that if you’re looking at this post in your reader or in email, you won’t see the button to buy the PDF. What a thing to learn on launch day. If you come to this page directly ( the button appears and you can click it.

    Yep, You’d better fix that link quick or they’ll be coming for you with torches and sharp farm instruments. Also, I’m looking forward to adding to my Jim Grey library collection.

      I’ve fixed the link. Turns out I had it set to be private, but I could see it because it’s my book. Whoops!

    I’ve really enjoyed the photos in the book Jim. I’m a big fan of Tmax 400 too. I think if you have to choose a single film to cover a spectrum of potential shooting conditions, it’s definitely the way to go.

      I’m so pleased you like my book! T-Max 400 is my favorite b/w film, hands down. It’s just so good at everything.

    Happy to confirm the link works now! I am also looking forward in eager anticipation to expand the “Grey, Jim” section in my library. :)
