The following are endorsements for Art of Winter, a photography coffee table book about the beauty that winter creates with ice and snow. This will be published July 2012 by Whitehead Press.

“Delicate, sensitive, provocative in simplicity of seeing. Impressive images of a winter’s landscape.”

David Muench
Master landscape photographer and author of Our National Parks and Ancient America

“Handsome in design and remarkable in its detail, Julie M. Covert’s Art of Winter pays tribute to a national treasure that is the Great Lakes. Feast your eyes on this very personal collection — from the stormy to the serene, and the marvelous to the strange — these many faces of Lake Huron in the crush of winter will excite your senses. You will want to be there.”

– Rob Benchley
Photographer & co-author of Scallop Season: a Nantucket Chronicle and Keeping the Light

“Complaining about winter is a birthright for most citizens of the Great Lakes region. From childhood, we are reared to dread what amounts to 25% or more of a calendar year. The Art of Winter illustrates just how wrongheaded that native aversion is. Wandering Lake Huron’s boreal north shore with camera in tow, Julie McKay Covert reminds us all that if you’re dressed appropriately, Winter is in fact the most splendid of seasons.”

– Chris Winters
Photojournalist, Great Lakes maritime historian and author of Centennial: Steaming Through the American Century

“The Art of Winter is a stunning work in form, light, and texture.  Julie Covert has put together a wonderful collection of images that conveys the beauty and the pristine solitude of winter.  Her frame-filling compositions of ice are works of art worthy of being framed.  Julie’s sensitivity to natural light shows in each of her images, taking advantage of the two most beautiful lighting conditions in nature – sunrise/sunset and soft, diffused  light.  I’ve seen Julie’s photography mature over the course of many years, and it’s a pleasure to see this culmination of  her artistry and technical expertise in photography.”

– Jim Zuckerman
Teacher, master photographer and author of Techniques of Natural Light Photography and Pro Secrets of Dramatic Digital Photos

“Winter has long been one of my favorite seasons to photograph and Julie has captured the reasons why. Beautiful light and colors, unique subject matter and of course a sense of adventure. Winter however is the most challenging season, with frigid temps, deep snow and slippery surfaces that threaten to dump you into icy waters or send you tumbling with expensive camera gear in hand. Julie has braved these elements to bring home a collection of stunning images that capture the nuances and incredible beauty of this most splendid season. Art of Winter belongs on the bookshelf of everyone who loves the snow covered scapes of the Northland.”

– Steve Brimm, Photographer and publisher of “Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, Spirit of Place”

“The images in Art of Winter are stunning. I was born and raised in Milwaukee, WI. I’ve been here for 27 years and each year become more and more sick of the snow. Your images caused me to actually appreciate the splendor and wonder of the textures and subtle shifts of color and light. This book is a really gorgeous work.” 

Julia Kozerski, fine art photographer
