Pictures can and do add considerably to a book. Often an author may fail to secure photo information, thinking that the use of pictures would be too expensive. While it is true that the inclusion of photos does increase costs, their use can be cost effective, while adding a very nice touch to your valuable work. Check with your printer/publisher to see what type of format they can work with for your book and if any formats you may use carry additional expense.  We work from loose original [no negatives, please] black and white photos, sepias, tin types, color photos.  While not recommended, we also can work from b/w or color copies, some computer files or color slides.

Please note that while we can work from computer print outs, they shouldn’t be grouped on single printed out sheets. For economy’s sake, cut them apart so they are “loose” (don’t forget to ID them). If what we work from are not loose, additional charges will apply.
