WHAT TO EXPECT
Care and collaboration — we get involved only in projects we believe in.
Dialogue based on the initial submission. Are there additional photographs to be considered for the book? What are you, the artist, trying to express with this work? What are your thoughts on sequencing?
The photographs will be submitted as digital files (rgb, 300 dpi, 17" maximum dimension vertical or horizontal jpeg (not compressed) or tiff with no additional sharpening. The photographs will be titled artistname001, artistname002, etc. This will be accomplished through a shared Dropbox folder.
The books have minimal copy. You will be challenged to think about your work and distill your thoughts.
The best financial model is to drive customers to the WILBUREDITIONS site to purchase books. We hope that you will become a partner and advocate for WILBUREDITIONS.
We will work with you to supply books for special events and lectures. In addition to books, we will offer a special voucher that can be used by your customers to buy your book at a discount through our on-line store. A stack of cards at an event with a few books is more mobile and flexible for travel.
