About

Mock-up book jacket
Mock-up book jacket

This project is being funded so I can purchase better photography and lighting equipment and take my Instagram feed, @penguinbookaday, to the next level.

I've not been happy with the quality of my pictures of late and i'm striving to produce the best images possible within the confines of my home.

With just over thirty-four thousand followers on the Instagram site, I think they deserve the best that I can produce and to do this i'm going to need a better camera.

At present, all my photos are shot on my smart phone and then edited and uploaded direct onto Instagram through their app.

Take a look here; www.instagram.com/penguinbookaday

I'd love to be able to take much more high-quality photos, edited on my computer, then upload these to Instagram.

To fund this I've decided to create a book of my best Instagram photos as well as creating a whole host of new shots to cover the vast myriad of other publishers out there that I have collected over the years.

Publishers will include, Penguin, Pan, Digit, Arrow, Dell, Hutchinson, Touchan, Zypher, Four Square, Badger, Corgi etc plus Movie and TV Tie-Ins and Services Editions.

The book itself will be 18 x 18 cm, at least 48 pages, offered in paperback and hardback versions, printed on high quality photo paper and of course, in full colour. 

It's worth re-iterating that this book is being privately printed and will never be sold through any other source. Not through Amazon, as an eBook, or in any high street store. It's unlikely the print run will ever exceed a few hundred.

I am aiming for each page to be a feast for your eyes!

I'm also offering as optional extras, a promotional postcard, a calendar and a mug. These will feature the best high quality images from the new book.

I've two professional photographers who will be assisting with lighting and framing the new shots and a professional designer who'll be doing the wrap-around cover.

That's about it! Please help @penguinbookaday get to the next level and keep the feed running! Your help is very much appreciated, thank you.

Risks and challenges

No real risks here! I know I have the desire, knowledge and resource to get this book completed. Conservative publication date would be early December 2015, although possibly sooner depending on the printers.

I am determined to get this completed and enjoy a book that I myself would buy in a heartbeat! There's been nothing like this before.
If I can reach my goal, I know i'll be able to continue to produce a very entertaining and popular Instagram feed for many years to come.
