I have begun publishing soft-cover,inexpensive books via HP's site MagCloud since hearing of this from my friend Ted Orland. The biggest benefit of this service (versus Blurb and others) is the low cost of publication. In addition, the color quality is excellent- and repeatable, and the size is large enough to provide nice-size photos! Each book comes in either a paper copy volume or as a digital version which can be viewed on your computer and also looks great on mobile devices such as iPad, iPad Touch, iPhone, or devices with the Google Chrome OS. You can see all my MagCloud publications here.
In addition to books for sale I am also offering an inexpensive MagCloud InDesign Template for $49.00 to allow you to create your own books without the necessity of becoming an InDesign expert. See below for more information.
Portfolio 2013 is my latest publication. This is a 66-page compendium with 64 of my favorite works. Locations include Yosemite, The Southwest, the Pacific Coast, Southern Africa, New Zealand, and others.
The volume is my first in the new 12x12" square soft-cover format, with the same great color-managed printing as my earlier books but with even better quality paper. This volume lies perfecty flat by virture of its wire-o binding. The images are twice the area of those in my 8 1/2x11 books (see below). This is a value-priced coffee table book.
Based on a one-time publisher's discount from MagCloud I can offer this volume for $29.95 for print and $4.95 for digital. Print purchasers receive a free digital copy.
These soft-cover books are 60 to 64 pages with beautiful color-managed images.
All are priced at a reduced price of $19.95 for print and $3.95 for digital.
Two Images of Nature issues are also available:
Images of Nature: Two is a 76-page 8x11 soft cover book containing 72 of my favorite images printed one-per-page with excellent color fidelity.
Images of Nature: One is a 40-page 8x11 soft cover book containing 67 of my favorite images printed two-per-page with the same great color fidelity.
Each is priced at $19.95 for hard copy and $3.95 for the digital version.
I've had good reviews from other pros. You can preview the entire book before ordering on-line!
