Publishing a Photo-Book!

Ladies and gentleman,
I’ve pulled the leaver, thrown the dice, pushed the button, crashed the piggy bank, all that before I’ll kick the bucket. The printing process of my new book has started to roll and it’ll be working on it every day until it’s finished, presumably by the end of November 2019.

This is my first vlog in the series about the making of the book Light Mood. In this vlog I’m announcing the project and describing my concept and the basic thought processes how the photos were made and how I’m planning to approach the making of the book.

The pre-order of the book is available on my site:
https://www.borutpeterlin.com/shop/

My other photobook vlogs are on this link:

Photobook / GRÉGORY DARGENT / Topsheet #74

leave a comment »

¸
.
I’m back from Paris and of course I’ve been shopping. The secondhand video tripod and the rail was 250 EUR and those three books were 170 EUR. Photobooks are expensive, but if I would have to choose either photobooks or the video tripod, I would chosen photobooks, that’s for sure. It’s such a beautiful piece of object, a photobook, don’t you think? I see many layers in each photobook, photographs inside, a cover page, a graphic design, editing, a concept, the way story has been told, rhythm in the book, printing quality, paper, smell of the ink, how does it feel holding in hands, weight, surface texture,… I could go on whole day about the charm of a photobook.

The book featured in this 74th vlog is by GRÉGORY DARGENT.

Dear followers,

this vlog is very different then my usual ones, so I ask for your opinion if you want more of this kind too, or would you prefer more about my professional eclectic vlog? Either case I am going to do both kind of vlogs, but I am wondering if this “talking head” format of the vlog contains enough useful information on the expense of entertainment? Or perhaps you prefer this kind of vlogs, to share a view in my creative thinking and how am I getting inspired from books and art works on general.
Thank you for your feedback. I wish you a pleasent moment, here and now.
Borut
