We rarely do reviews on photo books so the mere fact that we are typing this probably tells you all you need to know. Barely Made It by Patrick Armbruster is really good. You should probably buy it if you are a fan of snowboarding at all. From hand dug pipes to sold out stadiums and beyond, celebrated photographer @brusti was there for it all. A founding member of the famed Absinthe Films group, as Travis Rice puts it, he was “on the inside, helped develop some of the most credible magazines, and just happened to always be there at the most important places at the right time.” Can’t get much better than that.
340 pages. High-quality boarding. Perfect gift for the holiday season. And if you are giving it to a snowboarder, it doesn’t really matter that it is late so you are all good. Whether you want to go cover to cover when you get it or take in the stories over time, this thing holds up. Get the book here right now!
