HOLY BOOK UPDATE! BATMAN!!! Print version arriving soon.


Just wanted to update you all on what's happening with my insanely fun, vanity publishing adventure, the photo novel: The Lisbon Portfolio

Belinda finished fine tuning all of the interior design and building the print version from scratch. We could have gotten up quicker if we'd just taken the short cut and uploaded the e-version. But we knew it wouldn't look as good. She's done an incredible job but that shouldn't surprise anyone who knows her since she's been the lead graphic designer on countless magazines and books for corporate clients.  Can you say #BrilliantDesigner ? 

So, we uploaded the print version and passed all the publisher tests and formatting double checks with flying colors. I ordered three proof copies today and they should be here early next week. We'll go through and make sure everything from the front cover to the last manuscript page is perfect and then we'll push the magic button and let Amazon.com come publish the printed version (all 472 pages of it) and make it available to an international audience of photo spy book cognoscenti. I'll post the links to the print book the minute after we launch. 

Thanks to my readers for their patience and support with this project. All the help and encouragement behind the scenes has been wonderful. What a nice group of people we've got here!

Aaahh finally - thanks for letting us know Kirk. The Kindle version is on my wife's wish list, but I can't even order it as a present for her - so I was waiting for this printed version...

That looks like a Nikon F Photomic with the 105mm f2.5 you're holding in the cover illustration.

Close Dave. It's an F2AS with an old Style 55 micro nikkor f3.5.

Read it. Loved it. I'm reading it again. So few fun books about photographers out there.

I enjoyed the Kindle version immensely. It gives pleasure on so many levels. Most memorable to me is the little side story of how the photographer loves to use his vintage Leica. Probably because I enjoy using my old film friends on occasion, too. I will probably purchase the print version, if only to have something to thrust in a visitors hands, with the command, "You must read this!"
