    Hi Ron
    I am also in, if you ask for a cash deposit to help with your out of pocket expenses.
    Just out of curiosity, what printing technology dose your printer use? I have seen some medical periodicals where the color printing looks fantastic, Art in and of itself. I am not suggesting that you go that far. I am sure that either the cost of subscription to these periodicals is astronomical. or the cost of advertising in them is cosmic,or both. Its just that Graphic Arts is a side-interest of mine. I admit, that I do not read these medical journals. I just "look at the pictures".

    Guys;

    I am looking from low end to high end on this. I made the editing copies in B&W with a color cover using low end technology. I quoted the price earlier. Well, the B&W was pretty bad, but the color was superb. The high end is probably a killer for this project in terms of price, but the high end was used for Bob's book. So, I'm still working on this.

    I will be using one of our daughters for advice. She is an engineer for Xerox and an expert on these methods including the POD systems. So, I have an in-house expert so to speak (well in-family, as she has her own home ).

    I will be giving these 4 copies out to friends soon, and as they do their readover, I will be doing the bibliography and the index, neither of which are finished. As I may have said earlier, I am fighting with Word over the index. I hope I win.

    Oh, Word. Not the most... uhm... friendly or advanced program. It's like a rocket you have to build yourself, with half the parts missing.

    Ron, have you thought about maybe getting someone in to help with the typesetting?

    I like the photos! They tell a story in their own.

    I think I would split up the layout of the titles and the author's name. I would do it like this:

    PHOTOGRAPHIC EMULSIONS (all in caps, on a line by themself. Use a larger font for this line, and justify it across the top of the book.)

    Making, Coating, Testing (all on the second line. Perhaps in caps too for consistency, but I think I would put them in italics, and at a smaller font than the first line of the title.)

    (Then the 3 photos just as you have them.)

    R. G. Mowrey (Mix of caps and lower case. Right Justified. Note the omission of "by".)

    Note I changed the title of your book slightly - from "PHOTOGRAPHIC EMULSION" to "PHOTOGRAPHIC EMULSIONS". I think it reads better, especially when the title is split up as I propose.

    Spruce up the cover. I'm sure there are quite a few peeps on here good with design, I'm not bad myself either. Look at other books for inspiration?

    Perhaps draw some styling from 18th/19th century books even..

    Looks VERY nice! Nice to have a real introduction to the subject in cover picture. This is rarely seen, but works like a charm in this case. Goes 1:1 with the title.

    Hi Ron,
    How come the top picture is bathed in green light? A magenta sensitive emulsion, with no blue or green sensitivity?

    Bill;

    The top photo, as all stills and video taken "for real and in the dark" was done with IR light which is rendered in green by the sensor in my videocam.
