First book

I just received my first book and I’m absolutely delighted. I ordered a soft cover 7×7 as a proof to see how the colors came out and the quality of the paper. I’d sent in my images in at 300-jpg in sRGB. I used the ICC HP Indigo Press 5000 Semimatte. The colors are very close—the difference being between pixels and print. I’m going to fine tune the placement on the pages and the size (really appreciate the zoom in BookSmart!) of a few of the images, then do some flaps for the dust jacket and sent the thing back for a Hard Cover. Thanks, Blurb! Marguerite
