Should I publish a book of my old photos?

Postby bermuda » Wed Jul 12, 2017 4:24 pm

I have a ton of black & white pictures from the Ricky, Rocky Road, Eat It, and Living With A Hernia videos, plus some In 3-D studio shots. A few of the pics from the Ricky and Rocky Road video shoots have emerged, but 98% of the shots are unseen and have never even been printed - they exist as contact sheets only.

If I put out a physical book with the best of my black & white shots, would that be of interest? I have no idea how many pages there would be, or how much it will cost to publish, and if it starts looking too pricey, I won't do it.

Your thoughts?

Seriously, though, I'd love to see a book of these behind the scenes pictures. The 3D shots would be especially interesting (with 3D glasses?).

I'm definitely in for buying a copy. I love old photos!

No, that's a terrible idea. No one would buy it.
