Finding a photo book publisher
January 14, 2013 3:12 PM Subscribe
I had a successful Kickstarter
for a photography project, largely thanks to MetaFilter
. Now I need to produce the Big Book (photos of every dot on the map in North Dakota), and, while I can print and bind it myself, I'd like to find a publisher. Where do I start? What do I say?

The University of Minnesota Press
seems like it might be a good fit. Looking at my bookshelf, I have photo books from Phaidon
, Hatje Cantz
, Twin Palms
, and Kehrer
, as well as university and museum imprints, and less-art-focused publishers like Chronicle, Taschen, and teNeues.
Do I just shotgun these publishers with email, point them to the Atlantic InFocus post
(thanks to MetaFilter!), and ask if they want to publish my book? If this doesn't work out, I'm happy to print the book myself, but I'd like to give this a shot first.
