In a recent post you mentioned ( Marty Rabeno has a super nice book on his work that he publishes himself).

How do you get any info on this Book (Purchasing Etc.).

He must have or Should have a web page.

I would be very interested in purchasing.

Here's what I have and how it happened.
My photo album was starting to look real ratty and the plastic sleeves were falling apart. Now I just came back from a trip to Italy and one of my wife's friends suggested a web site that would make an album of the trip. The web site is called PICABOO.COM. While doing this vacation album it dawned on me to upgrade my age old photo album.
They have many different page formats available for you to use but none of them seemed to fit what I wanted to redo. So I made up my own pages in Photoshop and imported them into their program as a full page graphic. Now this took some time to rearrange everything and scan pictures. But frankly it was fun. When you are all finished you upload the graphics to them and in about 2 weeks you have the printed copy.
I had this book on my table in Reno just to show my stuff and surprisingly got a lot of requests to print some up to sell to people. This I did as I needed to. The price is the same from Picaboo no matter how many books you purchase plus shipping.
I do have four copies that I will bring to Reno with me just because I happen to have them.
This is something that anyone can do and it does have a very professional look to it.

I am disappointed, I was hoping for a how to on your style of engraving.

That is something you might think about.

Have you seen the Paid, On-Demand Engraving Tutorials, by Roland Baptiste, Ray Cover and Tom Sterling on the Lindsay Forum.

http://www.engravinglessons.com/On-Demand Engraving Tutorials.htm

I am trying to work up a design now, using your style of Engraving, so I definitely would pay for a short Tutorial (I hope you don't mind).

Thank you for the fast responce.

Being an instructor at GRS. I am not allowed to access the Lindsey Forum as per a policy set down by Steve towards the GRS instructors.

Let me see what kind of a design you come up with for your project.

I would love to purchase whenever it is available. I really admire your work. I suspect you no longer have the prior one available? Thanks!

It will be a while till i get everything sorted out. Will need to configure new and old photos. Not to mention reminding myself how to do it. It is a long overdue portfolio update. I will keep you updated when i am finished
