    Re: Let's go for a GetDpi Leica Thread Book !

    Here's a little more:
    1. limit it to one photograph per photographer on one page
    2. Keep it to 2010 photographs done with a digital Leica M

    This would keep the content down; make the layout easier; limit the photos that could be used; make the book cheaper; make a 2011 book more plausible.

    One photograph per photographer could really highlight the variations in content, technique, and post-processing that run through the M-thread. It's harder to see that when you're scrolling through the screens. I't be fun to see it in a book.

    Cheers, Matt

    thanks Matt, I take note. I've got real life work to do at now, but as soon as I got time I'll propose a synthesis of all your propositions.

    Cheers, Stef.

    I'm game.

    Few more suggestions :

    - comittee to handle all this should be made, you have to have 2-3-4 people responsible for handling the files, choosing them, etc.
    - standard layout should be used to have coherence throughout the book - standard font just doesnt cut it - then for 10 pages we will have 10 diferent layouts with the same font... layout should be decided and implemented throughout the book
    - each photographer should have 2 pages ( or whatever is decided ) and a introduction , choosen by the photographer - people will send their photos(s), text and forum username and all be displayed in their page. comitee will handle all submissions and "make up" the book according to this - seen a couple of interesting layouts already in this thread
    - 10% or so markup should be applied to the book and donated to some charity... lets asy the book will cost 30-40-50 usd / euro, that means each book ordered will conver 4-5 euros to a charity organization.
    - agree that Jack and Guy should make the intro

    oh and I'm in
