    Hi all,

    I didn't see it mentioned on the forum yet and I thought it might interest people.

    Guido Braem reports on his facebook page that a new and updated version of his 'The Genus Paphiopedilum 2nd Edition' will be published soon. This time it is a paper version with and I quote "666 pages, 247 illustrations (of which 222 are in colour), 98 species"

    He also writes: "If all goes well, it will go to the printers in June ..."


    I personally am looking forward to it.

    Rob.

    Thanks, Rob. I'm glad this will be in paper. Although I like most things on a computer, I found it hard to get through the e-book.

    Excellent addition to existing Paph. info. books. Now if
    we only had a really juicy Phrag. book. Wouldn't that
    be heaven??!!!

    Not sure if it's true, but word on the street is Cribb has completed one and is looking for a publisher.

    My bet is Cribb will be the first to publish, but Braem will follow up with a much more detailed and concise volume. It's the "when" part that kills me!! ??

    Bjorn, I had two years of German in college and I haven't
    used it in so long that I'd really have to struggle to translate. Eric, pretty photos are nice, but I want information on growing. Please
    tell more about Olaf's book.

    If the info. concerning Braem is correct, I'll wait for his
    book. I've read too many rather nasty things about Kew, Cribb and the orchid police.

    Begs the question why it has not been translated to English though!? If it is so good, solid author, obvious interest... why hasn't anyone translated it? Not like German is some archaic lost language that only three scholars know!?

    Good to know. I do NOT like e-books. There's nothing like the feel of pages in one's hands. :clap:

    I know JAB. I was just teasing Bjorn. Most western Europeans speak several languages because of the proximity geographically. Americans expect EVERYbody
    to speak English for our convenience. Americans are also
    generally unfamiliar with the metric system (with the
    exception of the scientific community) and expect EVERYbody else to convert to suit us. It's part of our
    "exceptionalism" don't ya know. I've always admired the
    multilingual Europeans.

    Metrics? That must be one of those German words.
    LOL! I hear ya... Americans are sadly embarrassing most of the time. When I travel abroad I tell everyone I am Canadian, eh! Mitigates a lot of BS!
