Have you ever thought about writing a book? How about creating a book about your work as a botanical illustrator?
Many people think about writing a book and publishing it themselves. Today authors have many services available to them to make the bookmaking process easier and faster. But how do you write your own book? How do you get it published? Where do you start?
On Tuesday July 13, 2010, Lydia Inglett of Lydia Inglett, Ltd. Publishing, Design & Marketing will teach a one-hour online class in which she will explain the bookmaking process and give you the tools you need to launch your career as a published author. Lydia and her team publish and produce high quality books for authors, artists, and museums in the U.S. and abroad.
Recently, Lydia Inglett, Ltd. has produced Vanishing Light, a large format book of the fine art photography of Ben Ham, and The Art of a Sporting Life: The Wildlife Art of David Hagerbaumer by John Orrelle. Her latest publication, Response to Nature, is a stunning book featuring the orchid paintings and natural history art of botanical illustrator Pam Kessler.
In this one-hour class, Lydia will discuss:
- What makes a beautiful, salable book
- What a book will do for you and how it will further your career
- How to prepare for the publication of your book
- What to expect during the bookmaking process
- How to evaluate the many options presented by providers of consumer and commercial book designers
- How to market your book
- How to begin your book project
If you have entertained thoughts about creating a book highlighting your artwork or a special project, join us on July 13th and ask the questions you have always wanted to ask about the bookmaking process.
