    I'll be ordering one, but Sam, do you have plans to pitch it to a commercial publisher? I think the work deserves wider circulation than you'll likely get from Lulu, and a commercial publisher can also get you potentially higher quality, more consistent reproductions.

    David, I think you'll be surprised at the quality of Sam's book. It is also a great way to pitch his work to a larger publisher.

    I'm sure the book will look great, but there has been some discussion over on the LF forum about inherent problems with digital print-on-demand systems with some good information from participants in the printing industry. It may be that the book I get looks as good as the book you get, but will they look like each other?

    More importantly for this project, I think, is that a commercial publisher can potentially do more to market the book and get it into more hands, so I think it's worth giving it a shot.

    Hi David,

    I am well aware of the drawbacks of print on demand. However, I have never seen something printed as such that looked as good as this.

    Why would this matter? Sam has put out a great product. That is what matters to me. Maybe the discussion of quality and print on demand is best discussed in one of those threads?

    Maybe the consistency of the product doesn't matter to you, Bill, but it might to Sam. That's the only reason I mention it. More importantly, I think the book has a larger potential than as a print-on-demand publication, so I hope it realizes that potential.

    It certainly does. I hope so too. For now, I think this is a great thing for Sam to have accomplished.
