Monticello Road Book = Holiday Gift Idea

Filled with familiar faces and places, the Monticello Road book is perhaps the fullest expression of what the project--and the neighborhood--are all about. And it's sharable!

This eighty-page, full color collection is a terrific gift, a great way to remember this place at this moment--or to tell other people about it. Consider it for your own home, or your out of town family or friends.

As with everything in this project, the book is available on a pay-what-you-can basis, starting at the production cost ($50) plus shipping (if applicable). People have generally chosen to spend $50-$75.

There are several signed copies in the McGuffey gift shop and in my studio. If you would like me to personalize it, gift wrap, drop off, or ship, just let me know.

Contact me for more info.

Do you offer a virtual version of it? I am interested to buy one but the shipping price is expensive.

Wow! Buying through Blurb is pricy--you don't have to pay that!

The idea with the book is that it's pay-what-you-can. Production costs me $50 so that's the minimum. Most people pay 60-75 but anything 50 or more is fine. Add on $5 for shipping if that's needed--or I can deliver locally for free.

A digital version doesn't make sense for a photography book. It would have to be either low quality and not look good or high quality and risk digital theft. Sorry about that!

Many of the photos are on my facebook page. Friend me and you can find them there.

The payment method is good. People can really customize and choose their book according to their liking.
