The Complete List
of all Mark Dahle Portfolios

Mark Dahle Portfolios can be read in a few minutes and then enjoyed for a lifetime. Thought-provoking and beautiful, they feature an unusual combination of compelling photographs, brilliant paintings, and deceptively simple text.

The short, 50-page books include the image of a painting, twenty or more beautiful photographs (often of urban or industrial settings), and a short story.

The mass market version, available at fine bookstores worldwide, are individually dated at the time they are printed, giving collectors bragging rights and something to show people who acquire their copies later.

In addition to the mass market version, ten large 13 x 19 inch Fine Art Versions of each portfolio are available to art collectors. Five of the ten are reserved for Mark Dahle Art Museums; five are available to individual investors and institutions worldwide.

AACK! That is too many choices!
Help me decide.

Okay. Is the book for someone less than five years old?

If yes, choose Any Pet I Wanted or Monkey Brains on Big River

If no, would you like something funny or slightly creepy?

If you would like something funny, choose The Ostrich Fart or When The Trolls Moved.

The Ostrich Fart When The Trolls Moved

If you would like something slightly creepy, choose The Eighth Anniversary of Lunigrab or Trip 21.

If you think, "I don't want to choose between funny or slightly creepy. I just want something normal," choose The Birth of Aesop or One Day's Encouragement.

The Birth Of Aesop One Day's Encouragement

Are you happy?

If yes, excellent!

If you're not happy because that's
still too many choices, choose The Grasshopper And The Flea.

If you like it and want to get more later, you can try two of Mark's favorites: The Carpenter And The Twig and Amanda Gets A Pumpkin. If you don't like it, you can read up on Artists Books and see if that changes your mind.
