Excellent Idea. On the Marillion theme. Perhaps you could make it that all those who have contributed would be guaranteed an image published in the book?

Yep, I'm in too and I also have the originals to all my photos in the event one gets chosen. Don't know how you would set the price but I think most members would probably be willing to pay 15-20 per copy.

One thing I would say is that for any photo chosen you should get the photographer to put in a paragraph about why they took the photograph, what it says or means to them and steer clear of the technical stuff apart from perhaps camera, lens and film.

Count me in! Like "answersonapostcard", I can lick stamps Smile

What about if we get "dressed up" in shirt & tie, armed with some official paperwork all go to our local Waterstones/Ottakars and ask? That could be a nightmare, it's just a thought... Smile

And, yes, the Marillion Method works in my head too.

15 a copy would (I think) be reasonable. Especially for the quality of picture that people would get.

Perhaps a few details with each print, location, date, camera, exposure details etc might a good idea? I like trying to understand settings to figure out how the picture was acheived.

Could All members with Websites put an Ad on their home page to help with sales.
I'd definitely place one on our site, for a 10% discount.

Only joking! LoL

sounds good to me. anythign uder 20 would be more than reasonable if you compare to most other books out there. it could even get a review from PP??
i'm not too good on the photography side of things but any way i can help, just let me know. i seem to have a lot of free time at work these days. and proceeds to charity - good way to get positive publicity.
perhaps a themed book to start - say british landscapes with proceeds to national trust or the like.

Great idea - count me in with whatever - my brother works for a major paper here in Wales - could be good for advertising.

I'm in for a copy, I think the idea of a link to the epz shop to buy a copy placed on all members own websites (voluntary of course) is a great way to retail it.

Proceeds to EPZ- yes, they provide a service, we are happy to use it, they should be rewarded.
Proceeds split EPZ/Charity - if you wish- But we don't consider this a public service- it is a business.
Advertise on own Website- yes- not a problem, but would be more effective if you created a little logo/Gif to use as a button, and for technophobes you could supply the gif, and the the link script. 5 minutes for you to create, one minute for us to install, increase EPZ traffic, keep the advertisers happy.
Pictures- For pictures reproduced large- get the owner to send in a CD with a High res scan, and a brief note about the picture. Then as a final chapter- pages of thumbnail size pictures of the best of the rest, with just the owners name underneath (to get more of us in, to get more of us buying).
Finally, as this could make a beautiful coffee table book, turn the adult filter on?

Only just joined this one, but it looks like a good idea to me. I agree that EPZ should get the proceeds. The return per photo will be small and poor old Pete would be sending out royalty cheques for less than the cost of the stamps.

Seriously if something like a book will help EPZ to continue then let's go for it. Softback in the range 15-20 would pitch it right, but if you want to hit the next Christmas rush you'd better get planning - where did you say you'd get a project manager?

Looks like there's lots of positive interest in this topic. I'm certainly up for being a project manager. Wonder what Rotavision will think of the idea. They produce some gorgeous books.
