    APUG book project

    This thread is to determine how many entries and what categories we will have in the APUG book.
    What I will need is:
    Name:
    Format:
    Printing
    Format:
    Subject
    Matter:

    There are probably more items I will need to know but this is to get the ball rolling and determine what is going to be involved. I can guess that if the numbers are to large there will be limitations. I would like to keep this thread as "information only"
    and keep discussion down to a minimum. If there are any of you out there that has expertise with this please PM me.

    Thanks guys. Let me make a clarification, printing format should be lithography, cyanotype or something along those lines. Each has it's own quirks when it comes to being reproduced in either a magazine or a book and the printer will most likely need to know this. It is also helpful in case we need to break this down into by categories. Keep em coming, let's see how big this is going to be. I would like to know if we will have to do a one off book or a series.

    Wouldn't "medium" or something similar be more appropriate than "format" then?

    I agree. Wouldn't this information be more useful for the final, chosen photographs? How many submissions are people going to be allowed to make? What if each submission is in a different printing medium?

    Also, not everyone wants their proper name posted on the internet (for various legitimate reasons) so I find it a little off-putting to have to post my full name for what is basically a survey.

    Your probably right, I may be jumping the gun a bit but I am trying to see how much interest there is in this project. If anyone has a problem putting their name on this now it is optional. At this point I have no idea how many entries one person can have, it all depends on space and howany we can get involved. At some point in time I will have to have X number of firm commitments for purchase and I figure about 20% of initial interested parties to be about what others sites have experienced.*

    I have contacted several publishers with a slew of questions and now it is just a matter of hearing back with the answers. Most publishers tho will want to keep the profits off of the sales and I have no problem with that. The problem lies with the viability, how many firm commitments do we have? That is the question they will*want an answer to before they will even look at this. My goal is to make this an objet d'art in and of it's self, something you could set on your coffee table and be proud of and to that end I am searching out regular publishing houses instead of some Internet site.
