| p.1 #6 · Photographers Forum Magazine- Who has actualy seen there Best of Photography coffee table book? |
The "best of" photography year books are standard fare. It's legit, and $55 is basically what the book costs. You help support the selection process, graphic design, the printing and distribution. It also means that you can credit yourself for the inclusion of your work in a prominent photography book. "The Black Book" was another way offered to the best commercial photographers to show their work. The big difference there was that the photographer paid his share of the costs to make the book. It was really just a beautifully done self-ad. In the film days the Black Book prices ranged around $2500+ per page. The book would then be distributed nationally and free of charge to art directors, ad agencies, graphic designers, etc. That process has been mostly replaced by equally stunning photo websites.
