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.
Never let anyone drive you crazy when you know it's within walking distance....
