Not being coy about Jeff but no definite price yet. I honestly don't think it'll break the bank for anyone wishing to purchase. Perhaps somewhere in the region of £10 Sterling but don't hold me to that. This is the equivalent currently of about 8 x 28mm minis.
We know that we are taking a bit of chance but here are the choices facing us:
1. Do the book with no compromises(full colour, loadsa illos, pictures and maps etc) get it printed in a run of about 500... up front investment which is significant. RISK: don't shift enough copies, left with a load of big books and nowhere to store 'em. Upside: no potential copyright violations.
2. Compromise on size and quality and get printed cheaper(thus minimising all stated risks) seems like a poor option.. the coward's way!
3. Do as 1. above but make a PDF for online distribution: UPSIDE: minimise most financial outlay and storage costs. RISK: Copyright infringment as less scrupulous owners of the PDF pass it on to friends at no charge thus undermining everything we've tried to achieve.
We are currently trying to work around the inherent problems in option 3 above right now whilst still sticking to an issuing deadline of around Easter this year.
