Print On Demand

I’ve recently made a couple of picturebooks using the print-on-demand service offered by a company called Blurb (there are many others, and this is not a plug), and was pleasantly surprised by the quality. The (free) software isn’t hard to use, even for relative luddites like myself. There are a few problems involved in aligning double page spreads, calculating margins etc but nothing too dire. One of the books is a short portfolio of my own recent work, while the other is a record in b/w of the studio of the late John Sergeant, a master of still-life painting. Previews of the books can be seen at Here is an image from one of them:

Very pleased, and even more surprised that there were copies of the French co-edition as well, which we knew nothing about (or more likely had forgotten about)The Gardens of Japan
