Some loose ends!

Things just keep on coming up and of course I have to communicate all the little updates!

First and foremost, keep sending and publishing those print pictures, they are just a delight to see. Many of you have shared on Facebook or your own blogs and asked me if that's okay...OF COURSE!!!

Some of you have mentioned that you may exhibit the City of the World print. That's great! Please do keep us informed of any and all exhibits so I can keep the blog updated.

And to that end, I have a few extra sets of the print so if for some reason putting your own print "up there" scares you, I can send an exhibit print as long as it is either gifted to the exhibit locale or returned to me.

Also to that end, feel free to avail yourself of the high resolution key, suitable for printing and distributing, .pdf downloadable from the website here:

I sent the .pdf to Office Depot and received perfect copies for all of you, rather than print myself. At 8c a page, you can't go wrong!

Next on the agenda is the Colophon, just a reiteration of last communication with an important update.

1. Purchase the printed book directly from the Publisher, CreateSpace through Amazon.com
Now with ISBN for ordering through any publisher.
The format is softcover, perfect bound, 8.5 x 11 inches or 21.5 x 27 centimeters, black and white, 144 pages of pure delight. I chose options to make the book as inexpensive as possible.

You can purchase from Amazon now, here is the link:
That's all for now!
Many of you have asked when the next project will start, to which I say...soon enough! Let's rest through the summer and enjoy our Great City.

You have three choices for receiving this lovely compilation of images and clever writings:

1. Purchase the printed book directly from the Publisher, Lulu.com

This is a Publish On Demand outfit that will print the book as it is ordered so it will take around 3-5 days to receive your printed book. The format is softcover, perfect bound, 8.5 x 8.5 inches or 21.5 x 21.5 centimeters, black and white, 141 pages of pure delight. I chose options to make the book as inexpensive as possible and it is currently discounted in Lulu.

You can purchase from this page:

2. Purchase the electronic version, PDF Colophon (all 94 MB of it!) from the same publisher, same page. I honestly attempted to make this a free download but in order to store and protect the e-book there is a small charge from the publisher. Still, at $3.00 it is much cheaper than mailing or printing the beast.

3. Send me a postage-paid CD mailer with blank CD included and I will burn the CD for you with the PDF Colophon.
No charge for this option at all except the postage to send and receive. Email me for my address if you want to receive the colophon this way.

That's it! It's really awesome, enjoy the colophon however you get it.

I will post this on the blog as well for those of you who follow.

Mayor no more!!!
