cost is always a factor for me
i don't buy anything unless i know how much it will cost
and i already know that a beautifully crafted book is going to cost an arm and a leg
compared to a POD book ... you get what you pay for.
i have nothing against a beautiful well crafted book i appreciate the work and effort
that goes into creating one ... i do bookbinding, and have made
about 2 dozen hand crafted hard cover books myself, hand stitched, with images tipped in by me.
as i have said a few times already in this thread lodima press makes beautiful books,
and i have every confidence that their apug commemorative book
will be ever bit as beautiful as the rest of the books in their catalog,
but that said, there needs to be an alternative for people who don't want,
for whatever reasons they have, an expensive book ...
