I'm writing to let you know about "Make It! Mid-Century Modern," a mid-century modern how-to manual I'm self-publishing. The book includes twelve detailed, well-photographed how-to projects inspired by designers like Eames, Girard, Saarinen and others.
The whole project was sort of a 'Getting Real' for publishing (instead of software). We:
- used online collaboration tools to work with three writers and one graphic designer remotely.
- tracked progress using Basecamp and Campfire.
- under-did our competitors: other books in the same niche include more than 50 projects; we chose 12 we knew we could do really well, really quickly.
Inspired by Getting Real? Tell us about it.
