About the Book

As you all know, I have a project over at Kickstarter to fund the creation of a coffee table book. Today I wanted to talk about the book itself. Pretty much the crown of the entire project. All the effort and time I am putting into this project is to have that physical book in my hands.

The book will be a hard cover book measuring 9 by 12 inches most likely in landscape shape. The book will have 100# glossy paper for the inside which should show off the black and white photos nicely. It will end up with a total of 52 pages and be divided into sections based on the town or towns covered in that part of the valley. Each section will feature one photo larger than the others. That photo will be what I am calling the key photo. The key photo is the photo that will be printed as both a limited edition print and postcard. There will be a total of 15 sections in the book. Each section named for the town I shot the photos in or near. The following is the list of those towns:

READING
RIDGEWOOD
GIBRALTER/LORANE
BIRDSBORO/BAUMSTOWN
MONOCACY
DOUGLASVILLE/UNIONVILLE
POTTSTOWN (STOWE/KENILWORTH)
PARKERFORD/LINFIELD
SPRING CITY/ROYERSFORD
PHOENIXVILLE/MONT CLARE
OAKS/AUDUBON
VALLEY FORGE
KING OF PRUSSIA/WEST NORRITON
NORRISTOWN/BRIDGEPORT
CONSHOHOCKEN/WEST CONSHOHOCKEN

Something I neglected to mention on my main page of the project is a goal I set for myself. No photos will be taken more than a ten or fifteen minute walk from the banks of the river. I am also wanting to discover things people don’t always see when they visit these towns. You go to Phoenixville you will likely think of the Colonial Theatre or the canal. While I do plan on photographing those places, I also plan to explore some of the neighborhoods near the river, maybe get a photo of Black Rock Tunnel that goes under Phoenixville’s north side. I am looking forward to discovering what waits for me along the river that will practically scream out PHOTOGRAPH ME.

Of course I need your help to make this possible. Please visit:  http://kck.st/O0Rq0P and make a contribution today. And to the three people who pledged so far, Thank You Kindly for your generous support in helping me on my way to making this project a reality!
