So I’m done editing my photos for the upcoming book (first of maybe five). Just starting to design the cover. Here’s a screenshot of it so far. I’m sure it’ll change by the time I’m done. Same with the title and the back cover image.
The 12″ x 12″ 80 page coffee table book will comprise of around 150 black & white photos, divided into a few chapters.
Oh, and you’ll notice “first limited edition” along the bottom of the cover. I’m planning to produce 26 lettered copies (each book will have a lettered and signed limitation page, from A to Z). This limited edition will include two additional pages (four images) plus an 8 x 10 signed print that won’t be in the regular edition.
Once I’ve ordered the 26 limited edition copies I will go in and delete the two additional pages, along with the limitation page. I’ll likely change the cover slightly too. The idea is to make this limited version a very rare item with extras not found in the regular edition.
For this to work I’ll need to sell 20 limited edition copies. I plan to keep six for myself. I’m hoping to be able to offer them for under $100 a piece by ordering the books when Blurb has a 40% off sale going on. The limited edition comes with a signed print as well. Each book will include a different print.
If I ever become famous this book will be worth a small fortune.
I don’t know what shipping will cost across North America, but when the time comes I’ll post the purchase price with shipping included.
If anyone’s interested in a rare, signed first edition copy of my first major book, just let me know in the comments. Thanks.
