Just an advisory about the inclusion of photos--while digital on-demand 
printing makes it possible to plunk photos into a pdf of a book, don't 
expect the sort of quality that was typical in publishing in earlier 
days.  Really good reproduction requires photo offset printing, with the 
halftones matched to the printing press.  For anyone willing to accept 
some loss of detail and a narrower grayscale in exchange for economical 
production costs, it's not really a problem, but, expectations for the 
final article should be adjusted accordingly.
