What about organizing a group of people who are interested and sending a
copy of the book around so we could all see it--in a similar manner as was
done with the traveling portfolio? In this way those of us who are really
interested can evaluate it. We could all chip in and pay for the one book,
if that was deemed necessary. As with the traveling portfolio all who are
involved would be responsible for mailing to the next person. Just a

>How's the quality?

Dudley Harris, the person behind, sent me a copy of
the first book off the presses. It's a book of his own photographs and
the quality is what you'd call high in the four-color offset world. The
dust jacket was also done well.

One of the ways he keeps costs down is avoiding a press proof. You do get
a highly accurate inkjet proof of one of your images. Needless to say,
it's important that you prepare your images with an accurately calibrated
monitor and such. He does provide a good tutorial that illustrates the
limitations of four-color printing so you're less likely to freak-out
when that favorite photo of your neon tetra fish comes back looking a bit

For anyone trying to decide if they want to go this book route, you can
purchase a copy of his book at the site. This isn't a scam to sell books;
he simply can't give away hardcover books to everyone interested.

And no, though I did help Dudley with some of the logistics in this
project, I don't make a dime off sales.

Hope this helps.
