Now Playing: the pixies - trompe le monde
Topic: photography books
About a month ago I took over the task of designing In Her Own Image, the second collection of self-portraiture from the Female Self-Portrait Artists' Support Group. Miss Aniela, who had originally been intending to design the book in InDesign, had found her career taking off in a big way and realised she just didn't have the time needed to devote to putting the book together and all that entails, so I somewhat foolhardily agreed to pick up where she'd left off.
After countless hours spent downloading, prepping and importing photos; arranging image combinations and formatting within Blurb's Booksmart software with the assistance and suggestions of many of the book's design team; adding image and artist credits and contributor details; and then proofing it all with the assistance of a couple of lovely ladies from the design team; I finally uploaded the book to Blurb about midnight last night and ordered a softcover copy for proofing.
The book is now expected to be available to the public in early April and features the work of 87 female self-portrait artists in a beautiful 316 page edition.
The front cover features a wonderfully surreal image by Erika Pham, and has been designed by the very talented Elle Moss and Heather Evans Smith.
The book will be sold at cost through Blurb, and you can bet I'll be providing a link to it as soon as it's ready.
In the meantime you might like to pick up a copy of the first collection, She Took Her Own Picture.
