Last October I published this little 7" x 7" book of my gouache paintings at Blurb, a print-on-demand publisher. I was delighted! The color turned out to be quite good and the printing is clear. I included three step-by-step demonstrations, as well as 68 of my little 2.5" x 3.5" paintings.
Look how close the reproduction comes to the real thing:
It's not a big book, more like a little catalog sized booklet, perfect for browsing through now and then.
I'm now thinking about Volume II, to be published in about October this year. I think a yearly volume is a good idea. It's a marvelous way to keep a record of the paintings that have left my hands, and to share my portfolio with people who are interested.
You can see the whole book in the preview. Enjoy!
