Bluffton State of Mind
Celebrating Bluffton, the Lowcountry, and Palmetto Bluff
By Marge Agin

With Essays by Bluffton Mayor Lisa Sulka, Emmett McCracken, Courtney Hampson and Amber Kuehn with illustrations by Doug Corkern

Bluffton, April 2018  – Starbooks and Lydia Inglett Publishing announces the release of a new coffee table gift book, Bluffton State of Mind by Lowcountry photographer Marge Agin.

What is the Bluffton State of Mind? Although difficult to articulate, we know it when we see it. From oyster shuckers at The Bluffton Oyster Company to alligators, echos of long ago buildings, marshes and the May River, Marge Agin’s photographic art makes a bold statement for the Bluffton state of mind.

Essays from Mayor Lisa Sulka, Emmett McCracken, Courtney Hampson and Amber Kuehn, enhance the collection of visually entertaining and culturally vibrant portraits of Bluffton and the Lowcountry. This is Agin’s fourth book about the area.

Special features of this unique coffee table book include a cover that looks and feels like antique, weathered boards and a gallery section with separate tipped-on photographic images of Agin’s new work.

Bluffton State of Mind will be available in area stores and at Mayfest, Saturday, May 12, 2018 in downtown Bluffton, and from www.starbooks.biz and www.margeaginphotography.com

 

 “Marge Agin visually expresses the exuberance of the Bluffton area and the Lowcountry in her art photography. Fresh, lively and colorful, this new book captures the spirit of the “Bluffton State of Mind” for all to enjoy.”
– Lydia Inglett, founder and publisher, Starbooks
