Thanks for all of the support!

There are two copies being printed now - will update this thread as soon as we have them in hand! If they look good, off we go!

Quinn,

Would it be possible to show a list of all the artists that will appear in the book?

I'm a graphic designer and have made many "real" books, brochures, magazines, etc that printed on true presses.

For my wedding album we did one of these digital books through MPIX. I couldn't believe how good it looked.

Just fyi.

Thanks everyone. This is exciting and I can't wait to offer it - will make a great holiday gift! Yes, there will be one every year from here out. 

I'll order one (from where ever I end up getting them printed) before I release it to the public. I've used Blurb and have been satisfied with the results. There's a lot to be said about understanding the printing world, Photoshop and PDFs. Blurb has a recipe and you need to follow that closely for good results. 

The bright spot here is that your reference said, "If I shot nothing but color I would be all over Blurb like mad. I may end up submitting toned CMYK files (apply a subtle Hue/Saturation "Colorize" command to every neutral image) if they can't resolve this to my satisfaction."

All of the images in this book are toned CMYK files (but they vary in color from whatever was submitted) - that should help a lot.

YES,  sanders book is nice.  i just wanted to give the heads up.  while i am not saying that they need to be perfect you do not want any big surprises.  my brother has had some trouble and if you check the LF forums you can read about Frank Petronios trial and tribulations when i comes to blurb.  a qucik order just to see how they do is what i was suggesting.

either way i am in.
