Mary Virginia Swanson, with long-time co-author Darius D. Himes will inform and inspire participants by sharing their knowledge and experiences in bringing long-term projects to the book form. Our distinguished faculty members will be joined in our virtual classroom by thirteen Special Guests who are eminent members of the photobook community including editors, designers, book producers and publishers, curators and published / self-published artists and will provide crucial insight into each stage of the publishing journey.
Structured sessions focusing on being published, self-publishing, making and marketing photo books will provide broad awareness of the process of bringing your project to the book form.
Defining the appropriate audience for your book, seeking funding and sponsorship, and gaining clarity on the role in-house production teams and/or independent collaborators play in the making of a book will be discussed throughout this series. Participants will gain insights into book structures and production materials to aid in choosing the optimum combination of paper, printing, text and binding to most impactfully merge form and content.
The course concludes with sharing steps necessary to successfully launch your book, introducing it to those who share an interest in the subject of your work as well as placing it in the growing community of collectors and collections of photobooks today.
