    BTW, the core of the book is about 58M.

    I have it in 4 files and the total is a bit larger.

    Sounds dumb, but I actually know someone who went digital solely because of the use of gelatin in analog photo products. I am of a sympathetic attitude on the over consumption and mistreatment of animals by humans, but there is truly nothing more repulsive to me than human absolutism!

    Athiril;

    My head has a hole in it. I was up until 1AM editing the book, printing and reviewing the DVDs. Maybe you can explain your last post. I'm kinda whacked this AM.

    Sorry.

    Unfortunately, I priced out having my editing copies today. In B&W only it will run about $25 each without binding and up to $100 each in color. When I have the larger run made, this same type of price differential will apply!

    So, here is a question..... How important is color to you all? Is it worth up to 4x in price no matter what the price is?

    No. A black and white emulsion should be in B/W.
    (Even if it is color sensitive!)

    If color is critical, perhaps it could form a supplemental appendix in the DVD?

    These are color figures and photos, many FROM the DVD in the book to illustrate or emphasize a point.

    PE,
    What the Heck?! I don`t think anyone will be buying multiple copies of your book. The difference between $25 and $100 for a one time purchase is not a big deal! Anyone who is making emulsions must realize that $75 dose not buy a lot of AgNO3. I say Go For The Color. A color photograph of a gray scale image is only inappropriate if it misrepresents the actual image. A color reproduction of a warm tone black and white photograph can me more honest than a neutral reproduction of that image.
    I am serious,for a change

    Good to hear about your progress! I'm waiting eagerly.

    About color vs. bw ----

    although I am ready to pay 100 USD for the book -- for the marvelous CONTENT! -- , I would be a bit reluctant to do it just for color printing. If the book explained color theory etc. it would be more important, but BW graphics and photos in a book describing mostly BW emulsions would be IMO sufficient. If it is $25 vs $100, If I was you I would make it BW and $35 and use the extra $10 for buying some silver nitrate .

    Or to rephrase, I don't want that much money go to the print, but rather I'd support your research efforts with that money.

    So, color is a nice extra, but not worth 4x price.

    Most of the technical literature of this area is printed in black and white anyway and the photos and illustrations make perfect sense. Shanebrook's book is an exception as it is strongly a photo book.

    But, I'll be happy in any decision you make.

    Go for color. The photographs of the prints will show subtle differences with color.
