    I should lock-up my copy whenever photographer/friends are visiting ;-) An extremely useful text. The fidelity of the image colors are so important to this work. Good luck with the reprint.

    I went looking for this book not to long ago and was as disappointed as others to see it was not available.

    The books put out by Lodima Press are supposedly nice-I have not seen one, too expensive-their publisher might be an option.

    PDF from your site would be great. If you have the digital masters I would assume the illustrations and images are there. You could include suggestions for screenereolution etc...

    Some sites have password protected PDF files that you purchase the password or else you cannot open the file

    Does that mean you can only view the file at that site, or can you download it too?

    Typically you can download the file and print it if you wish. There are all kinds of controls the content owners can put on PDF's if they wish and know how to do it.

    So THAT'S the problem...I've been looking for a copy for a few weeks now, and yeah, I saw that one for $999. Impressive. I second the Lulu option, I've seen good end results from them, so I think they're worth investigating.
    The selling .PDFs option is also valid, but I for one hate reading from a computer screen. Painful after a while and you cant make little notes in the margins. So, if it came in PDF I'd have to have it printed and comb bound so I could read it anyways.
    I'd also give it about a week before people would be emailing it to eachother, but that's another problem.

    Obviously there's demand for it, and it's your work so you should be able to profit from that. I think a good print-on-demand service makes the most sense.

    I agree completely with Fleath. I just discovered this book and I'd LOVE a hard copy but I cannot pay $200 and up for it (not to mention that money does the author NO good). Sometimes it really sucks being late to the game

    It is some time since I investigated PoD publishing. Even a couple of years ago paper quality was a huge drawback, but I believe that this is an area where great improvements have been made. You might find that though formatting the text should not be a problem, your images may need a lot of work to be optimized for this kind of publication. Also, investigate whether you can recieve a preview copy of the book. In the past many self-publishing dreams were let down by poor print quality.

    I agree with doughowk, the images and their quality make the book work. The text is great but the step wedges and photo images make it all understandable. If the quality can not be reproducted, I would only publish if the book was reformtulated so as to not depend on the images so much. Of course if the book can be sold for $999 a copy, how many need to be sold in order to break even?
