On August 25th, 2016 Helaine passed away with her family by her side. Although we were still exploring a number of options for publishing the book in a trade edition, Helaine and I had discussed releasing a limited edition softcover version of the book through Blurb.com so we could make it available to all of you who supported the Kickstarter project and were eager to get your hands on a copy of the book.

Although we do still hope to have the book published the way we originally envisioned, Helaine's son and I have decided to make this softcover edition of Bensinger's available at cost through Blurb.com.

Prints are still available for sale and all proceeds will go towards a trust being set up by her family and will be donated to an arts nonprofit still to be determined.
