Self Publish+Design Your Own [Photo] Book 

With the emergence of high quality commercial digital presses and the availability of design software, artists are now able to produce their own hardcover and softcover books online at a relatively low cost and with the creative freedom of going it alone.

Self-Publishing Your Own [Photo] Book will cover the basic principles of designing your own photography book. Drawing on over thirty years of experience, Elizabeth will demonstrate the bones of putting together a successful photography book; demonstrate how to easily design a great book dummy, including interior design decisions, editing, sequencing, typography and cover design. We will explore what comprises good design from bad, creating a framework for the participant to build upon with their own book project; and the importance of branding, including using your self-published book as a valuable leave behind.

Oh this is something I would love to attend. If only I wasn't on the opposite side of the continent :)

Sounds interesting, but Chicago is too far away. I have visited a similar workshop with Markus Schaden in Germany. In times of new media books still have a big importance...
