Nancy and Eric came through Raleigh recently, and they had
a few books with them, done through Blurb.com, including
one large hard cover, so I had a chance to see them.
These books were exceptionally well done, I thought,
especially the hard cover (don't know if they used
different paper on that one or not, but the hard cover
seemed to have the best reproduction), but both hard and
soft covers had very nice reproductions. I was
impressed. I've not seen that many books done on
lulu.com, but from what I have seen, I thought blurb was
much more impressive. I'm working on doing one (maybe
two . . . three . . .) now. They suggested the best way
to do it is to order one, and when you get it back, make
any necessary changes/corrections/edits, resubmit, and
then order the amount you really want. Cost-wise, that
seems to be very manageable, too. I think it's a great
way to have your work saved and presentable. I had
looked at lulu.com, and for me, I blurb has been much
easier to use-- but maybe that's just me.
A short time ago a group of Rolleiflex enthusiasts
published a book of images through Blurb. I think the
archives of the mailing list are available, in any case try
considerable discussion over quite a long period of time.
I have also asked the owener of the list if it is OK to
refer you directly to him since he did all the dirty work in
getting the thing published.
