Yeah, that's pretty much what happens in The Trial Smile

What about this one:- If you haven't seen the work of Jean Cocteau before, this film is a must.

Colin has a shot of a candelabra that could be a still from this film.
He'll be posting it very soon - won't you Colin Wink

That's such a brilliant shot - I'm sure you could sell an image like that for an album/book cover Colin. Have you ever approached any publishers?

That's very kind, but I've no idea how to do such a thing.

that's interesting, do you have any books that she bound?

Re the publishing - if you got together say half a dozen shots, I think it would be worth having a go at surfing for publishers and seeing if they have an address for an art director and send some low res shots in. You've nothing to lose. Aside from the very atmospheric shot, I think this works particularly well because of the empty areas which would serve well as backdrops for text.

You've got to admit when you look at the books on the shelves there's not much to compare with what you've got here.

go on- be a devil Colin!

and that goes for everyone else on here too.

Hehe, that video was great.

Also I agree with Richard. That's a really nice shot.

Thanks Wendy.


Re bookbinding - and how well this thread has stayed on topic!- mother used to work at a small printers in Newark and I think all her binding was for commercial sales - although she did have one book that she said dad had printed and she'd bound. Don't know if it's still about, I'll have to ask.

On a more serious note, I am warming to the idea of talking with a publisher and even now am drafting a response to their rejection letter containing the words 'Beatles' and 'Decca'
