art portfolio books

Status: New Idea!

I am an artist and would like to have had an easier time publishing my small portfolio book. I spent a lot of time laying it out and polishing it and did not find the site easy to determine what I was getting into as far as price. I went through the 'calculator' process and it came up $ the end a 47 page 8.5x8.5 cost 38.24 each...I find it difficult to navigate your site and determine clearly what I am getting into as far as pricing for my publications.

My suggestion is that you emphasize 'art portfolio' category and clearly make it stand alone, without the confusion of cookbook or photo book or poetry book. Then break down the calculations based on that in a way that is easily figured out by the customer before they get deeply into a project...disappointing that my little book will have to retail for $38.50 and I still can't figure out how much is Lulu's and how much is royalty. Seems to me it should be easier for those of us who are tech savvy but just not publishing savvy...thanks
