There was a lengthy discussion about a week ago concerning the possibility of an epz book with pics contributed by members. But nothing since.

I guess what worries me is the number we would sell compared with how many would need to be printed. I think about 20 or so said they'd buy it which is way off the 1000 you need to make it viable.

I think it would take off once sorted, as many people don't look at the forums, or if they look, don't contribute. Once you have a product that is more than an idea, you will have something to advertise and will be able to put links etc. where a wider number of members will look. i.e. in the gallery pages.
Also, I think some of the people who have images in the book will be buying more than 1 to give as pressies! It is one of those projects that would snowball IMHO.

P.S. An example of the kind of member who never participates in the forum has reared his ugly head in the post above! But he(adskiesfly) is an active member!
