I publish inexpensive soft-cover books via MagCloud. The biggest benefits of this service are the low cost of publication and the quality of reproduction. Each book comes either as a physical 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.
I'm also offering hard-cover versions via Blurb. My 240-page magnum opus The Landscape is only available in hardback. Hardback volumes have the same excellent color reproduction as the soft cover books but are much more durable and are appropriate for your coffee table at home or reception area at work.
All these volumes are in 12x12" square format, with the same great color-managed printing as my earlier books but with even better quality paper. The soft-back books lie perfecty flat by virture of their wire-o binding.
California is a 68-page book with images from my California, including the coastal hills, Pacific Coast, Death Valley, Yosemite, and the High Sierra. Soft and hard back available.
Abstracts is a 68-page book with selected abstract images from worldwide locations. Soft and hard back available.
The Southwest is a 68-page book with images from my favorite desert locales, including Utah, Arizona, and Death Valley, CA. Soft and hard back available..
