front and back cover of the book - Seascapes: Vivien BlackburnMy book arrived today! I'm very happy with it apart from a couple of small silly errors that I'd made - very minor ones like forgetting to change the font on the back page so it doesn't match the title page. So once I've put them right I'll make it available for those who have emailed to say they would like to buy a copy.
so - if you'd like one - watch this space :>)
I can definitely recommend blurb. The one thing I don't particularly like is the payment system - a bit like imagekind, where they don't pay out until a certain sum is reached. Blurb are fairer though, they pay monthly (for anyone interested) but don't pay until the money owed to the author is over £12.50 and they charge a £3 admin fee for sending it. That's £3 for sending payment for 1 book sold or 100.
The colours are true and the quality and binding is good.
I will definitely make some more, including one on sketching with more text. This one is more a catalogue with over 40 paintings and just a little text.
