CNP Coffee Table Book - Now a reality

Postby dinesh.ramarao » Fri May 25, 2018 9:44 am

Dear CNP ians,

It is indeed immense pleasure and satisfaction to hold the "First copy" of the book Art of seeing - Creative Nature Photography

We dreamt, planned and made.

I repeat, "we have made this". Except for the print, "every page, every pixel, every dot, every inch, every corner of the book is "made" by CNPians".

Please wait for further updates.

best regards,
-RD

Thanks RD and Ganesh for the extra effort.
Wonderful news. A milestone indeed.
Art is about what is inside rather than what is outside

I suddenly realised something change while reading this post. Time for me has slowed down. From now on till I get my "EYES" on this beautiful creation, and wrap my "MIND" around this marvel, this post will taunt me and every second will weigh its burden on me.
Hats off to all the stalwarts who pulled off an amazing task! And congrats to everyone in the CNP family for lighting up our world.

Friends, we will let you know when we are ready to take pre-order shortly (in a week or two). Three volume book set will be available at cost price for us and anyone (need not part of CNP community) to buy since it is a collective effort by CNP team. Our priority was quality followed by price. The book has gone through 9 rounds of editing so far during last two+ months on calibrated Eizo displays. Finally we have the first proof print. This may need some minimal color correction work etc to match further with the needed output on paper. In a week we are ready to go for mass printing. We chose a gently textured fine art matte paper. One may tear the page and frame the image!

As RD mentioned only printing control is out of reach for us and that is an important and deciding one! RD has worked very hard going from printing press to printing press getting sample prints made. Initially we thought of exploring printing presses outside Bangalore too however considering the need for sitting physically with the technicians at press we thought it would be difficult to manage. After trying four different presses we have settled on one which we are happy with. That said, printing gives us sleepless nights. Tomorrow we will go through the nuances of how each image got rendered once again and will do tweaks if needed. We hope the effort involved will be minimal.

Tremendous effort put in by you all from image making, image selection, image processing, book design, reviews, proof prints of sample pages at different printing presses and finally the first print of the 3 volumes! We sincerely hope we will have something that will outlasts us.

Please stay tuned for pre-order announcement shortly.

Phenomenal effort and I am sure this set will be iconic.

Thank you all for the efforts and more importantly, for the continued inspiration to look beyond and look differently.
Best Regards

It is indeed a long awaiting task which has come to the conclusion and we all are sure that it will come out at its best.
CNP has always played a big role in the over all history and development in Indian wildlife photography as an art form and this book will be proved as a historical landmark which CNP has created.
We are eagerly waiting for these bunch of creativity.

Regards
