Then and Now Book

I just wanted to throw this out there and get a little feedback. I’m working on a book based on my Northern Nevada Then and Now articles. Each “chapter” is really just two pages, a Then photo and a Now photo, each with historical background and maybe a few smaller pictures. I’d like to get up to 60 or 70 chapters before I publish the book, so at the rate I’m working at it should be done sometime before the end of the decade.

Here’s a PDF file with three chapters that are more or less finished. I want to hear what you think, what criticisms you have, and whether or not you’d buy it. Might as well start evaluating my market now, you know?

Be brutal. If anything’s screwed up about my idea, I want to fix it now. Of course, it would be nice to get some compliments too!

    I’m very impressed with this layout. It’s much better than most Then and Now books which just show 2 pictures and leave it at that. You actually tell the story behind the picture, similar to the Seattle Now and Then series by Paul Dorpat that you are familiar with. But I like your layout better. My main gripe with the Dorpat book is the confusing layout. It’s not always easy to tell which is the Then and which is the Now photo. I like the fact that you put each photo at the top of the page. Seen side by side in book format that’ll look even better. I also like the inclusion of other, related historical photos. Great job so far!
