Archambeault has produced photographs for four large format “coffee table” books, KENTUCKY, 1982; KENTUCKY II, 1989; and KENTUCKY III, 1999. His book, The Gift of Pleasant Hill - A Shaker Community in Kentucky, published in 1991, captures this unique restored historical Shaker community south-west of Lexington.
Archambeault produces two annual wall calendars, KENTUCKY, inspired by the landscape of his state, and PAWLEYS ISLAND, a visit to the historic barrier island off the coast of South Carolina. Archambeault also creates numerous fine quality note cards and postcards.
