I hadn't expected quite that much per book, I was planning $100 or so per book and then my own costs for printing photos to ship with it. My costs would be around $80 depending on the size of the book (that would dictate the size and number of photos). I had done some researching at on line publishing places like lulu (http://www.lulu.com/publish/?cid=en_tab_publish
) where it would be less than that but less quality.
I could accept a $250 cost if it meant higher quality, but I may have to scale back production.
