ABOUT THE LECTURE:
“The print-on-demand revolution has opened up new publishing possibilities for photographers; it has never been easier or more affordable to produce and market a book of your photographs. The traditional publishing path has the advantage of a highly specialized team that brings experience with design, production, marketing and distribution systems to the table. In a self-publishing scenario you can create exactly the book you envision, but without the input and expertise of seasoned professionals at a publishing house. Which scenario is best for you?
Darius Himes and Mary Virginia Swanson, coauthors of the recently released Publish Your Photography Book (Princeton Architectural Press, 2011) will give a 50-minute visual presentation for artists who wish to bring their artwork to book form, discussing both traditional publishing and self-publishing avenues towards helping determine the pros and cons of each path.
Time will be allotted for Q&A following the presentation; copies of Publish Your Photography Book will be available for purchase.
