sorry to sound like a downer but ....
with print on demand there is a trade off, quality for a lower price and NOT having to have 25000 copies of a beautifully printed book in a storage facility.
maybe this was the scenario several years ago, but i used to be friends with someone who worked at a nyc publisher
( amphoto, aperture type place ) that published photography books ... and she schooled me in the days before POD became popular ...
if lodima press publishes such a book will the people whose work is printed in it be responsible for back-end costs of storage and the upfront costs for publishing the book ? or will there only be a small quantity of books printed, which will in turn increase the printing costs?
while i think it is wonderful that michael and paula are interested in helping with such a book project,
i know that i can't afford the costs affiliated with such a high-end production.
