Last week I finished and self-published my first monograph, entitled ‘Red Rock‘. Red Rock includes 24 of my square format landscape images all taken in Southern Utah. You can follow the previous link to see a preview of the pages from the book on the Blurb site.
It is available via Blurb – I entered this book into Blurb’s photography book contest “Photography.Book.Now’. I’ve ordered a copy of the book from Blurb and it should arrive on Tuesday. I’m anxious to see the quality of the printing. I’ve heard mixed reviews of Blurb’s quality control, but I did sign up for their B3 program for professional photographers that promises more consistent and better quality printing. We’ll see.
They also have a new large size – 12×12 inches – which I chose, even though it drives the price up significantly. I hope it is worth it.
I’ll post here once I see an actual copy of this – but I’m certainly excited to see the results.
UPDATE: I did receive my book and it was better than I was expecting. Perhaps it was lowered expectations, but the print quality was actually quite good and the color matching was about 90% of the way there. Only a few of the bluer images were not right on. I look forward to trying this service again in the future.
