The Second Edition of Lighting Interiors by Scott Hargis is now available in hardcopy. We are offering this option through lulu.com because people frequently tell us they would rather have a hardcopy than the e-book form. I understand totally. I have to say that after creating this hardcopy version I’ve totally fallen in love with it. It is 8.5 x 11″, spiral bound, full color throughout, printed on quality 80 lb paper with high-gloss 100 lb covers. It’s a beauty! It weighs 2.5 lbs. This is not something you can produce on your HP color Laser printer or InkJet printer. This is a quality book.
But I should warn you that it costs $126 before taxes and shipping. The reason is:
- It’s full color – It has to be, I created a black and white version and it looks like crap!
- It’s 293 pages – more pages than the e-book because of blank pages to make the hardcopy layout work well.
- It’s printed on quality stock – If you are into books it feels good!
- It’s printed on demand. That is, we haven’t pre-printed thousands of them because the demand for a hardcopy version is not big enough for that.
So if you spend a lot of time with Lighting Interiors as I do I think you’ll like this form of the book. Oh yeah, I should also point out that this version doesn’t have a 30 day guarantee where we refund your money if it’s not what you expected like the e-book and purchasers of this book don’t get future updates like the e-book purchasers. This just works like a traditional book.
