does anyone in blurbland know if apple’s ‘pages’ has a similar export capability?

Arts & Photography as two separate bookstore categories?
General Interest

hello redmeg8,

i was pondering what my next book would be when i came across your illustration books. i was planning on illustrating a series of short stories i wrote back in high school. but once i saw your pencil drawings it sparked me to thinking about all the sketches and drawings i had done from my highschool years. some of them make me cringe now because of either the subject matter, young angry boys draw strange things, or the talent level, but i wanted to keep them nonetheless. so i’m going to compile, scan and prepare them for a ‘personal past sketchbook’ of sorts.

thanks for the inspiration and love your work. i admire stylized artists, but i’m a true fan of the discipline or realism. for what it’s worth.

comic books...?
General Interest

thanks for the response,
hope the comic size makes the cut. the books i’ve done so far have been well received by my family and friends. they love how professional the books look and feel.
i’m planning on an illustrated book of short-stories. not really a comic this time, but something to test the look of illustration and text in blurb. so i can be prepared if the comic size does come. if not, i still plan to use blurb for my photo books.

keep up the great work.

is there progress being made on a viable model for printing comic books standard size or otherwise? i’ve made two great books here, but with this format in particular, i’ll have to bounce between blurb and lulu. and right now lulu has a considerable headstart.
