I don't really expect anybody from here to buy a book, but some critique would be nice.

I have published with Blurb before but this is my first photo book.

There is a link HERE to my website page where I embedded the preview link from Blurb...

So see it in full screen size - click the 4 arrow button on the bottom of the preview screen!

Thanks for looking,

Jim

Hi Jim: The book really looks good. It was good to see that the photos you used had been shared with us here on the forum. They were shots that I think everyone liked when you posted them here, and they translate well into a printed photo book. Best of luck with it.

Thanks Steve - It was hard to choose the pics for the book - I had well over 3 thousand to choose from although only about 250 that were final processed. Narrowing my whole trip down to 21 photos was tedious. But I am happy with my choices and I like the design....I am anxious to see the final product.

Jim

I'll echo what Steve said, Jim. I've put together two books and a calendar. It sure ain't easy deciding which ones make the cut!

....very well done Jim.

Assembling photo books is a difficult chore, I did it several years for high school baseball seniors and there are always those 'other' files that deserve a page.

My daughter surprised me, for my birthday, with a book of my close-up / MACRO photos; 20-pages and I wish for more every time I look through it.

Books are a wonderful way to display images, always have been and always will be. Thanks for sharing, as Steven said, it is nice to see the files you made as we traveled along during the winter with you.

Best of luck with sales, you've done well with the presentation and options.
