Nice!

Will this be available to the public?

I was looking for a promotional piece for shows where we couldn't set up the entire layout for display and possibly a fund raiser tool. I have made some improvements to the book see below. 

As far as selling copies I can sure have one printed for anyone that would be willing to pay for the actual print costs. Sadly due to the limited number I'm doing it's more expensive than a typical book published in the 1000's of copies. Nontheless I would be honored if anyone would want to buy a copy. 

 

 

So give us a dollar figure and let us decide.  Who knows maybe enough interest to drive down cost.

That is amazing.  I have never seen anything like that.  And I like it!  Bravo!  That is superb.  

Charge $120 a book.  I would bet you'd sell loads of them.  Then every time you take a new awesome pic, sell a copy of it or a new page for $5 a piece to add to the book.  Self perpetuating cash flow.  Just a thought.  Very cool.  Very, very cool.

I can't help but be fascinated by your modeling and photos.  After a second look, my favorite is the black and white in your original fourteen that has all the shadows from the fire escape stairs on the side of the buildings.  It is mesmorizing.  Dude, that is fine art.  I'm glad I saw this.  Keep up the good work.  Cheers,       BK

Thank you Bill, I really appreciate that! I am trying to bring a touch of fine art to our end of the hobby. It's worth it for what we create; the effort we spend building and composing our scenes why not try and illustrate it as close as possible to those who don't or are unable see it.

I can already feel the creative juices flowing.  Scenes that reflect the seasons of that time of year...

I'm thinking it is definitely doable.  I bought an artist 's calender before and she wasn't flush with paper.  She was an English teacher in Minnesota with a psychedelic flair which I liked.  What I'm saying is the calender may be much cheaper and easier to put together, gauge interest, then when youv'e got them hooked, go for the bigger project.  Strike now while the iron is hot.  Plus, an annual influx of year end cash flow just in time for Christmas.  Sweet deal!

Yes, I will accept your offer to be your agent and marketing guru.  Consider your hand shook.  Keep up the good work.  Cheers,       BK

Definitely a calendar. Get them hooked first. Well I most of us here are already hooked and a biased audience. How quickly do you think you could come out with one? 

I agree with him.

In this era of demand-published stuff, it would only be a matter of designing and getting the photos straight.

I will add as I am trying to convey, the artist I bought a calendar from wasn't what I would call a technologically savvy person.  She may have went to Kinkos with her prints for all I know.  It was a simple calendar, and it worked for me for a year.  Then I cut out a handful of the artwork and put them in frames.  I am more than sure that Erik has all the resources to put this together.  

I have many scenes already planned.  Almost every month actually.  I will withhold my ideas until we define our boundaries of creative control and a level of compensation we are both comfortable with.  If that's ok with you.  Is it warm in the winter by you?  Double handshake.

Smiley face...
