Coffee table photobook design, layout, examples

GREAT video tutorial (webinar replay, 59 minutes) here on coffee table photo book planning / photo selection / page sequencing.

http://www.blurb.com/help/video/sequence_design

Conttent applies to any coffee table book, not just those printed at Blurb.

Good Q/A at the end.

Re: Coffee table photo book experiences - good and

Danny...I don't mean to highjack your thread...we can start a new one if you'd like...but I was thinking this thread could keep info related to "coffee table books". I wanted to start a thead where anyone could post a "coffee table" book they found they they really liked. I'm personally intested in improving my layout.

Spectacular idea...

Leave the first one as "experiences with publishers" - use this one for design resources, examples.

Re: Coffee table photobook design, layout, example

"Cover design":
* Image selection
* Format
* Color considerations
* Type/font choices
* etc.

Hosted at the blurb site, but generic in concepts / instruction:

A little dry, but worth one viewing.
