“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?In this presentation, coauthors Darius Himes and Mary Virginia Swanson will discuss both avenues to publishing and help participants determine the pros/cons of each. Swanson will share resources from their forthcoming title, Publish Your Photography Book (Princeton Architectural Press, Winter 2011), and time will be allocated for a question/answer period at the end of the presentation.”
