I’ve featured Serif and Silver before, but I wanted to bring your attention to another Nate Matos creation based on a limited edition collection of the publication. The Compendium Pryme Edition. You’ve heard me say this before, but there are plenty of people who could be doing this but don’t. Nate does, and man does he do it well.
Not only is this a limited edition of his wonderful serial publication, but it also coincides with a launch party and exhibition in San Francisco on August 13th. This is how you do it people. You get creative. You make the pubs you want. You sell them if you wish, both a trade version and limited version. You compile a limited edition, sell that and then MOVE ON with your life to live and do it again. You are never going to sustain yourself on this model. Nobody does, but almost nobody in the world sustains themselves on selling their own photography books or pubs, but what this model allows you to do is make YOUR publication on YOUR terms and then get on with your life. With the POD there is no upfront cost. You just put it out in the world, hide and watch.
Nate is a doer. A creator. I follow him on Twitter and think he might just be crazier than me. Maybe. But everyday he shows me something different. Who doesn’t love that? Go forth people, and blaze your own path. And in the meantime, see if you can get your hands on one of these babies.
Power on Nate.
