"The Photographic Book: Developing, preparing and executing content for publication." We will share examples of handmade, print on demand and commercially printed books and talk about our pathway as photographers and publishers. Participants would bring a project ready for editing and we will look at image selection, sequencing, preparation, typography, and options for project realization. Each photographer would leave with a prototype and a plan for their book project.
