I attended Photo Plus Expo at the Javits Center in NYC last October and met with many creative professionals in portfolio review sessions organized by Palm Spring Photo Festival. In total I visited with 5 reviewers. One of them was Todd Bradway from D.A.P. (Distributed Art Publishers)

The reason I selected him as a reviewer is because I have been working on a photo project titled
The Museum of Messages for many years and I am currently looking for a publisher to print a book and or produce a digital e-book of my project. 

Todd gave me many helpful pointers on certain publishers I should contact as well as how to market my book. He told me that photo books aren't selling in the mass market and to introduce my book to publishers as an Art + Design book. I thought that was a brilliant idea! 

Above is a screen shot of a mock up book that I am creating in iPhoto to present to publishers. 

I am interested, what are your thoughts on the future of book publishing?
