Two weeks today, I’ll be releasing the long-delayed self published book of mine, Five Simple Steps: Designing for the Web. Since I originally thought of writing my own book, producing it, and distributing it, I’ve been asked several times, ‘why not go with a traditional publisher?’
É uma área que me interessa bastante, até porque comprei o livro da Ellen Lupton, mal saiu, um para mim e outro para oferecer, que recomendo em complemento ao artigo de Boulton:
Indie Publishing, Ellen Lupton
Enfim… não se pode ter tudo, mas que ao menos se tenha o prazer “da coisa”:
Of course, there are advantages for a more traditional approach. As much as the process of writing and editing is painful, you can be assured of a good product at the end of it – even if it doesn’t sound like you. You don’t have to design it, typeset, proof (again, and again), artwork, production, delivery, customer service. There’s a lot that goes into publishing and I’m learning the hard way. But, it’s fun. The book is coming along nicely, and two weeks today, will finally be released.
It may not be a work of beautifully crafted prose. But it will be me. Warts and all.
As Gestalt principles go, the principle of similarity would seem to be one of the simplest to grasp. It states things that are similar are perceived to be more related than things that are dissimilar. Simple enough, right?
Um link para um estudo muito, muito interessante, no seguimento da auto-publicação: http://bookpublishing.today.com/2009/02/03/book-industry-statistics-a-very-thorough-study/
Did you know that in 2007, 27% of Americans did not read a single book that year. Scary stuff.
8,000-11,000 new publishing companies are established each year. That’s a little more encouraging.
