at the large format forum they have put together a book ( or 2 ? ) of submitted work
make and sold through blurb --- from all accounts came out pretty good. the large format group
is a smaller forum though and i would imagine the compilation / assembly / submission of works from an apug group
would be a huge task seeing that it is gigantic by comparison.

few questions though ...

would the publication be curated? or everything submitted would be published ?
would someone inside apug put it together ( would they get paid seeing how much work it is ? )
or would an outside group have something to do with it ? ( like the fraction magazine curated show )

there is a lot of great imagery in the gallery, and i agree it would be great to see it all between two covers
