SlowExposures PHOTO FESTIVAL: Book Design Workshop

Sept 17th9AM - 3PM • Zebulon, Georgia

Self-Publishing Your Photography Book with Elizabeth Avedon
The basic principles of designing your own Photography Book

+ + +

Now that artists are able to produce their own hardcover and softcover books online at a relatively low cost, self-publishing has become a popular alternative for photographers. My workshop, "Self-Publishing Your Photography Book," will cover the basic principles of designing your own photography book including; design decisions, sequencing, typography (Serif vs Sans Serif) and the cover. We'll explore what comprises good design from bad, creating a framework for the participant to build upon with their own book project, and briefly discuss the self-publishing companies available. We'll work together and as a group to evolve each of the individual projects. (The workshop will not cover technical questions - pdf-to-book workflow - or software questions). Contact SlowExposures
