Finally, a book to call my own.

July 30th, 2011 by Rebekka in Uncategorized

After at least two years of enthusiastically thinking about it every few months, I’ve finally put together a photo book.  The first of many more to come, if all goes according to plan.
The book is a collection of photos I’ve taken of Icelandic horses over the past 5 years,  and is available for purchase in the Blurb bookstore, either in soft or hardcover.  You can check it out right here.

I’d heard a lot of cool things about Blurb, and am a big fan of keeping things simple, so I decided to try it out for this first tentative venture into publishing.  I downloaded their free BookSmart software, and after some initial frustration at not figuring everything out at once, I soon found myself loving it.  Endless possibilities and freedom with layouts and stuff, couldn’t really be easier.  And since you only need to purchase one copy of each book you create in order for it to be published in the Blurb bookstore, there’s an incredibly low starting-out cost (as opposed to printing an edition of x-many books first and then hoping they’ll sell).

Again, the book can be found here, along with a preview look at 15 of its 40 pages.
