powerHouse Open House

February 11, 2009

One friend of mine calls this a “coming clean of how they do business”. Selling book deals to talented photographers has been the way of photography book publishers for years. I’m pleased to see  that powerHouse is offering a model for even smaller scale book runs. Photo book publishers normally print less than a few thousand copies of any title. Now, for a few thousand dollars less than what was previously charged, almost any photographer has the opportunity to be published by this new powerHouse imprint. I think I’ll try Blurb first.

powerHouse Books is pleased to announce the launch of
