“Try to not be afraid to experiment and play. A lot of folks try to make “War and Peace” right out of the gate. They choose a size, usually the largest they can get, and immediately make decisions that are set in stone. The beauty of Blurb, or one of the beauties, is that you can make one book, so test away before you settle on what will be the definitive product. Perhaps your Hardcover 12×12 book would be more effective as a softcover 7×7? Perhaps your 6×9, color trade book would be more impactful to certain clients as as 11×13? “

-Dan Milnor, Blurb’s Photographer at Large

If you’re a photography student and you’re in New York on Wednesday, October 26, you’ll want to attend Dan Milnor’s free workshop on “How to Make a Book that Works.” It’s part of the series of the World Photography Organization’s Student Focus events at the Chelsea Art Museum. Dan will go through the process of bookmaking from concept to creation.

Dan’s philosophy is that bookmaking is supposed to be fun. So he encourages people to play around with book sizes by showing four versions of the same book, Homework. He then goes through other essential bookmaking choices including font selection, image size, and editing your photo set.

The talk is free, but if you plan on attending, they’d like you to reserve a space by sending an email to info@worldphoto.org with the subject line ’Student Focus – How to Make a Book that Works’.

  1. Do you have to be a student to attend this? And what time is it? I can’t find it on the WPO site.

  2. Hey Debs,

    I’m not sure how strict their requirements are for being a student, but the session runs from 11:00 to 12:30.
