Back Pages of Leelanau County
For people who love Leelanau County, a coffee table book coming out this summer seems destined to capture a place in their hearts.
Back Pages of Leelanau County will take readers through a decade of photographs taken by famed outdoor photographer Ken Scott. The book includes every Scott photo published in the Leelanau Enterprise in its cherished position on the back page of Section One.
From the first photograph 10 years ago, Scott has every week captured scenes of Sleeping Bear Dunes National Lakeshore, Leelanau’s small villages and most other iconic settings that have given Leelanau the simple nickname of, “The County.”
Scott’s work is both timeless and time setting as readers of the Enterprise are bound to recall many of the photos.
The book includes essays about Ken Scott and his work from Susan Ager, award-winning former columnist for the Detroit Free Press and presently a contributing writer for National Geographic, and Leelanau Enterprise co-publisher Alan Campbell.
