Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Planning your photo book, part of Designing a Photo Book.
Let's begin by asking some important questions about your photo book. …Do you intend to self publish the book or do you intend to approach a traditional publisher. …In this course I am assuming a self publishing sceneario. …But if the latter is the case, I recommend this book by Darius Hines and …Mary Virginia Swanson, which also has lots of useful advice for those intending …to self-publish. To self-publish your photo book, the …obvious route is to use an online print-on-demand service.…

This course assumes such a scenario but …it is not the only route to self publishing. …If you're printing in quantities of more than a thousand than offset printing …would be more cost effective. Or if you have an established …relationship with a commercial digital printer. …They may be able to offer prices for short print runs that are cheaper than …those offered by online photo book services.…
