my take is that if one person is going to curate a book of apug images
there shouldn't even be submissions. he or she should just look at images in the gallery and then email the people whose images
were liked/ accepted / made the cut ... and ask if they would be interested in having their work in a book.
let people know this is going to be going on and then look at every image in the gallery ...

then have a 80 page book ( or volumes of 80 page books ) since 80 pages seems to be the best value ...
and go from there.

make the announcement, browse the gallery email, publish and have an APUG page on blurb ...

have the moderators or membership council or open vote here on apug
decide who is going to be the curator and have a new book every few months .
and maybe every few months or once a year we can have a celeb-curator who is a member / subscriber here on apug.

joel since you started this thread, maybe you can be the first book czar



threads like this go on for 30 pages, and nothing gets done besides name calling, and bad feelings ...
