If some could promote the book it would also be great as the last edition had a really good price. Fingers crossed we can do it for the same amount this time.
I could liaise with the publishers if you want?

Can I suggest we open a submissions window between now and mid/end July, and use August to prepare the book, and a launch in September.

(And call it the 2015/2016 book).

As long as we have the people to coordinate the project.

Tiriel has the contacts at the publishers and we would need to know if the price would be the same as last time.

A good friend asked to see the "2016" book over the weekend - it was a regular part of the Christmas dinner. Woops...

The community here seems to have evaporated a bit...

Yes it is a shame.

Ready to compile another edition if the interest is there.

We need to whip up some interest in the community. If there is then we may be able to publish the next edition.

I have the template ready to go.

Getting all the images in is like herding cats.

Then there is the finance management and the launch.

It does not seem there is the interest to do it again. It is a pity. Glad I have a full set of past editions.

Sad to see an end to this series, was always a great part of christmas. I think it's from a time when the community was a lot closer knit (but not introverted), and the whole pix.ie interaction backed up and added to that feeling.

No more than yourself, glad to have the full set gracing my shelves.

Met up with a photography-friend, who btw always wanted to but never contributed to the Boards photobook, this afternoon. She asked about the book again and i had to disappoint her.
Off topic: She also mentioned missing pix.ie and said she would gladly pay for an account if pix.ie were up and running again.
