MUSEO is released


I am pleased to announce the release of MUSEO, published by explorenation.net, and represents my first fine art photography book comprising 94 photographs in black & white. I have been working on and off on this series over the last 7 to 8 years, and since discovering blurb.com, a self-design, print-on-demand online bookmaking website earlier this year, I decided to give it a try.

The entire process is rather straightforward, with little or no experience needed in layout and design. There are many templates available in the design programme which is downloaded onto your computer. One thing to bear in mind, is that you will need a fairly fast computer with plenty of working memory as it tends to get sluggish as you add on the images to the pages.

The final product took longer than expected to arrive but I understand that blurb uses several printing presses in various parts of the world and I think MUSEO was printed in Switzerland, so it may be delayed by other circumstances.

I am well pleased with the final outcome, and the paper stock is particularly good. Please visit the sidebar link to view sample pages or to order. So impressed with the entire design and print process, I have designed a client's recent wedding album with blurb.com and I can't wait for that to arrive.

Steven,
Congratulations on your new book. I am also amazed at the new technology of printing a book and selling it by demand. I think it will drastically reduce the cost of publishing a book and prevent wastage of stock of non sale able books.
