My art and poetry book, “Compositions of Truth and Nature.”
My Art and Poetry book, “Compositions of Truth and Nature,” is over 60 pages full of brilliant, full color Nature photographs, my own work, paired with my own original poetry, inspired by my photos, and my experiences with Ecology, Social Justice, Fantasy, Literature, and Magic. It is complete with a linen cover and rose gold hued title cover text.
The poems and photos in this book have been featured in art and poetry exhibits state wide, and across New England, and my poem on Motherhood and Caregiving, inspired by my sister, entitled, “You Tame the Tiger Everyday,” was recently published in the PoemCity Anthology book by Rootstock Publishing, and is a poem featured in my art and poetry book.
Printing the book, without a sale, costs ME $118 per book, due to the cost of the full spectrum color photo printing on archival quality paper, so I need to charge a premium rate for this book so I can get some kind of profit from the sales.
The attached images are only a few of the pairings of my poetry and Nature photography within.
At the $100 premium level, these are print on demand. But I have a number of copies that are previous versions that do not have as many poems/photos in them as the current version, that I am selling at lower prices, $35-$75, depending on which iteration. Please inquire if interested! I can also, if timed correctly with my printer, sometimes secure a sale that will help me reduce the price to the public for sales of this book.
I am currently looking for a publisher for this book to help reduce the price of the printing, to therefore pass on the savings to my customers, as currently without a sale, these books cost upwards of $100 for me to print, so I need to charge a premium rate so I don’t lose money. However, I can sometimes get a sale to lower the cost for me to print the book to still make a profit by selling at the $100 rate. But I’m happy to sell the previous versions of my book at a sale rate, as well. Many of my previous copies still have as many as 40 pages.
