    Well, I now have the master copy of the book and the DVDs to go out for duplication and editing!

    I hope to give out 4 - 5 copies next week or the week after to friends.

    PE;

    Glad to hear it's looking ready - I look forward to seeing a final price and delivery options. Might ask for a copy (or disk) for my stocking this year.


    Regards.

    Considering the amount of knowledge you have, the time you've put in, and the expense to you, around $100 seems like a fair price. I say go for color unless the color doesn't add much. I don't know how the graphics have been designed so I don't know how well they hold up in B&W or in gray.

    A PDF version would be great too, if you could figure a way to not have to worry about it being passed around for free. PDF's are easily searchable.

    PE, I look forward to this a great deal!

    I received my copy of the great book on Kodak Film production by Robert Shanebrook and that just whet my appetite for more.

    I appreciate your sharing this knowledge with us!

    Ok, I have gone for full page text with 5" wide photos in color or B&W to show detail. Two column restricts detail too much and photos wider takes up too much vertical space.

    Dont count on Christmas this year. I am sending 4 copies to friends for editing first. So, think May - Sept 2011.

    The printer promised this PM, but never called. I expected to pick up the 4 copies this afternoon or early evening and no-go. So, I also have to depend on others.

    By my figure, the Silver Nitrate alone cost me about $900 and printing costs were well over $300 so far.

    Sorry.

    Sorry I'm a bit late in posting, but whatever the price is, I'm in. Haveing spent a long evening a year and a half ago reading whichever version of the draft it was and also spending more than an hour watching the DVD, I'm willing and happy to pay $100 for even a B&W only version of this book. I know it will be well worth whatever price you decide to set.

    Afterall, where else can someone get all that info in one place?

    Ron - Congratulations on this labor of love. I know you've spent a lot of time and money on this book.

    PS - if you need more reviewers...

    PPS - I'm willing to send in $50 as a down-payment to help get the first run printed.

    If a little cash in hand from subscribers will speed the process, I'm in too.

    Considering it is a textbook of some respectable volume (and labour), I'd pay more than $100USD for a copy. I dont mind saving for books, knowledge is the only thing worth investing in these days anyway.
    I'm also heavily in favour of colour printing. It may not be art, but it is science - accuracy in the reproduction should be high on the agenda, and I dont think black and white would really cut it.
    The Analogue Laboratory, or 'so you built a darkroom in an old factory in the industrial zone'.
    Blog thing!.

    Worry less. Photograph more.

    Alright, looks like the $90 - $120 range is doable for the B&W version. I'm looking at the color version. I have 4 copies of the B&W version here for the editors and am about to dupe the DVDs. There may be a CD as well with some extras (cookies again). I'll keep you posted. The DVDs will probably be in the $100 range.
