Celebrating your work

Here's a thought?
Have you been tempted to self publish a book, but don't know where to start?  If you have considered putting your photo images in book form there are many different online photo book companies available.  I have considered using this as a 'one off' way to document inspiration, sketches and images of a series of work that I would want to present in a book.  This might be great to show at an exhibition, and it might be substantial enough to take further with a number of copies. is one such photo book company which features contemporary templates to follow and allows you ample space to write as much as you want.   For a modest amount of money (and there are always 50% off sales) you can produce a book.  It gives you a good idea the quality of your photography and it is amazing to see your work in print.   Go into the website and see for yourself.  I have used them twice recently, first for a small softcover square book, based on images of a trip to the Isle of Mull, primarily to see the quality of the printing, then a lovely hardcover 81/2"x11" landscape perfect bound publication about our Antarctic expedition.  
Thrilled with both, I thought I would share them with you.  I am tempted to do another based on my photos, images, sketches and stitched pieces based on the Somerset Levels.   If anything it could focus one's attention on either self publishing a limited edition or finding an interested publisher.
Please keep in mind the weeks workshop near Cahors at as seen in my recent post.
thanks for reading.....  off to the Knit and Stitch tomorrow and can't wait.
