Bridgetown has arrived

Alright, it is with some satisfaction, relief and catharsis that I announce that my latest (and fourth...or fifth... or sixth depending on how you count) book is finished and public up on Blurb. I would link to it, but that is a no-no. So if you hop over to my profile it has links to all four of my Blurb books, as well as other stuff. Anyway, if your interest takes you, that is where to go.

In other related news, I have also secured the first showing of the work. I will be hanging a twenty piece selection (that is two images per bridge) at the City Club of Portland. No, there will not be an opening. Yes, they will keep open office hours should you care to go see it. And yes, this show will have legs and I will certainly be looking to have it up at least one other time later this year. I will post more info on the City Club and its hours come next week once the show is hung. I am pretty happy to be hanging there though. They are a pretty neat organization, having been around Portland for a very long time. They organize a variety of citizen-led research and other projects with the goal of improving Portland, including among other things, helping with the founding of Forest Park. So I am pleased with the quality of the audience this show will receive there. But I can talk about that a bit more later too.

What I wanted to talk a bit about right now was the process of making a book, or perhaps the process of working in a series, or both. First off, I have printed books three different ways, once through Lulu using a PDF I made myself. I don't show anyone that book and own the only copy in existence that I know of. Then I had a book printed for me by a company called GISI here in Portland. They basically used that book for propaganda for their better clients and paid me in boxes of books for myself. They did a fine job with it, almost too fine as it looked more like a serious book than a piece of advertisement for them. Years later, I still have people tell me that they have seen that pinhole book pop up here and there.

Eventually I moved to Blurb, where I have now made four books mostly on my own. Blurb is a print-on-demand service, like many others out there. Unlike many others out there, it is arguably the best at it. They have an excellent blend of print quality, design flexibility and marketing and promotional tools. If I chose to, I really would not have a hard time saying only good things about them. But I will be fair and offer up some of their weaknesses as well as strengths for those thinking about using them.

Advice #1. Print on the premium paper. Not much more expensive, but significant gain in print quality. As I said, their print quality is excellent. My eye still is more critical than their quality and yes, they leave room for improvement, especially compared to offset printing. But still, they are quite excellent. That room for improvement decreases noticeably with the use of premium paper.

Advice #2. Don't expect Blurb to make you rich. The trade off for the print-on-demand flexibility is much higher per book costs. This book costs me $48 to print for a 100 page book. How much can I reasonably mark that up? I currently have it set for $10 and at $58 the book is starting to seem a bit expensive to me. I did not make this book to sell it. I made it to scratch that creative itch that bugs me every year or so. So printing through Blurb is not an economical way of going if you are looking to become a photography book seller. Nonetheless, they do have a storefront to which you can direct others and they can buy direct from Blurb. So that is handy. They also give you a nifty preview widget to imbed all over the place, at least on-line. My profile has examples of mine.

Advice #3. If you make it, buy it. Once uploaded to Blurb you have to buy a copy of the book within 15 days or they delete, figuring you have moved on. But once you buy a copy, it is permanent.

Advice #4. You are probably a horrible graphic designer. Face it, you are a photographer right? Sure, some of you have graphic design backgrounds, and you will do fine. But most of you reading this don't. Just like how many photographers are amazed when they first witness the concept of weighting a mat, there are skills that we just don't practice at all or often. Now, if graphic design is not for you, go out and find a graphic designer to help you with your book. It will make a night and day difference, trust me. I look at the design of my first three books and yes, they get better and better as I get practice, but this last book was in the hands of an honest-to-god graphic designer (thank you again Patrick) and the effect is immediate and sublime.

The relation between good and poor book design is similar to how an amazing image can be brought down by clumsy printing, matting and framing. So too can a good book be tripped up by clumsy design and layout. Be aware of this.

Luis Sepúlveda - Un viejo que leía novelas de amor - the old man who read love stories book 1993 Spain

Luis Sepúlveda - Un viejo que leía novelas de amor - the old man who read love stories book 1993 Spain

Luis Sepulveda is one of my favorite writers. In 1997 I had the chance
to meet him in person. I remember that that day the trains were on strike and
I had to go to San Sebastian by bus. Near the begining of the Zurriola Beach
we were trapped by a traffic jam. Then I asked the bus driver to open the door
and in a "Forrest Gump style" (laughs) I run towards the library. I took the
wrong street and at the library entrance someone told me that the conference
was not there, that was in another place (in a street that has an indian name :P)
Then I arrived exhausted. I opened the door and all was in darnkess, and
while I was going downstairs I asked a woman,"Is this the place where Luis
Sepulveda..." and she smiled at me saying, yes, is my husband and He is
in front of me, here you have "Lucho" :) Just after handshaking him he had
ti pose for the press. Then room was illuminated by all the flashes of the local
phographers and I said to myself: "how thoughtless, they have destroyed all the magic!"
and I finally decided to "bury" my dream of making a portrait of Luis Sepulveda.I was carring
my Canon EOS 500 with me, but I tought that after such bath of flashes
he must be tired of photographers). I adored his conference, the way
he talked about his life and his process of creation, the anecdotes about
other writers...Damn, I?d do anything to have a copy of his conference
recorded. After his chat I had the chance to talk a few minutes with him.
We talked about ecology and He signed my book (the old man who read
love stories). And as I told him that someday I?d love to send my writings
to him, he was so kind to also write his personal address (yes, I?m an old
fashioned Dinosaur and I still love handwriting and paper letters, but saddly
my mailbox only receive bills :S and flyers of pizzerias :D). Oops, I forgot
to tell you that this novel is dedicated to Chico Mendes (a brave brazilian
dreamer who fought and died to preserve the amazon rain forest) and its
simply precious.

Luis Sepulveda es uno de mis escritores favotritos. En 1997 tuve la suerte
de conocerlo en persona. Recuerdo que ese dia habia huelga de trenes y
tuve que ir a San Sebastian en autobus. Cerca del comienzo de playa de
La Zurriola nos vimos atrapados por un monumnental atasco. Entonces le
pedi al conductor que me abriera la puerta y sali corriendo hacia la biblioteca
al "estilo Forrest Gump" (risas). Me equivoque de calle y alguien que estaba
en la entrada de la biblioteca me dijo que la conferencia no era alli, sino que
era en otro lugar (en una calle que tenia nombre de indio :P). Para cuando
llegue estaba exhausto. Abri la vieja puerta y todo estaba a oscuras, y
mientras descendia por las escaleras le pregunte a una mujer "?Es este el
lugar donde Luis Sepulveda...," y ella me dijo sonriendo, "si, es mi marido y
lo tienes justo delante de mi" :) Justo despues de darle un apreton de manos
tuvo que posar para la prensa. La sala quedo entonces iluminada por muchisimos
flashes de la prensa local y yo me dije: "?que falta de respeto, se han cargado
toda la magia!" y dedicidi finalmente "enterrar" mi sueno de hacerle un retrato
a Luis Sepulveda. Llevaba conmigo mi Canon EOS 500 pero pense que despues
de tal bano de flashes el debia de estar ya harto de tanto fotografo. Me fascino su
conferencia, el modo el que hablo de su vida, de su proceso creativo, las anecdotas
acerca de otros escritores...Maldicion, haria cualquier cosa por tener una copia de
una grabacion de esa conferencia. Despues de su encantadora charla tuve la suerte
de poder hablar unos minutos con el. Hablamos de ecologia y despues me firmo y
dedico el libro (El viejo que leia novelas de amor). Y como le dije que algun dia me
gustaria mandarle mis escritos para que el los leyera, fue tan amable de escribirme
tambien su direccion particular (si, soy un viejo Dinosaurio a la antigua, je, y todavia
me gusta y escribir a mano y recibir cartas de papel, pero tristemente en mi buzon
solo aterrizanmfacturas y propanganda de pizzerias :D). Oops, Olvide deciros que
esta novela esta dedicada a Chico Mendes (un valiente sonador brasileno que
lucho y dio su vida por defender y proteger la selva amazonica) y es sencillamente

Denim Revolution: Dozens of Ways to Turn Denim Cast-Offs into Fashion Must-Haves

Denim has always been universally cool, but the renaissance that this adaptable, comfortable, stylish fabric is now experiencing is unprecedented. Never before has the all-American blue jean had such infinite possibilities—both in how you wear it (as stylized jeans, belts, cuff bracelets, or bolero jackets), what you embellish it with (lace, applique, metallic braid, leather, paint, or bling), and the occasions it’s appropriate for (downtown partying or uptown dining).

But before you pay hundreds of dollars to get the latest denim looks (like celebs do), learn how you can actually create your own chic pieces from recycled denim in your closet, vintage stores, and thrift shops. In Denim Revolution, former Calvin Klein design assistant Nancy Minsky offers dozens of patterns for novices to experienced stitchers that fuse recycled denim with cool embellishments—mixing together old, new, vintage, antique, rugged, and modern to spice up your wardrobe. And you don’t have to be a master seamstress to get these fresh looks; many of the projects are designed for beginners and don’t even require a sewing machine. All have step-by-step instructions, sketches, and photographs to guide you.

In each of the six sections, you’ll find something to suit your personal style—be it “Denim Destroy Jeans” (for raw, reckless types), a twenty-first-century“Downtown Babe Jean Jacket” (for savvy city girls), “Alice in Wonderland Appliqued Pedal Pushers” (for a feminine, spring look), or “Victorian Romance Lacy Cuffs” (for a fanciful bohemian flair). Not ready to take on a project from scratch? Then learn to artfully add wear and tear to jeans you already own or easily convert a pair into a skirt.

Also included: A sewing tutorial and tips and techniques on everything from cutting fur and fraying edges to embellishing denim with embroidery, other fabrics, ribbon, lace, or paint.
