Looking to print a small limited edition book with fancy stuff in it. Does anyone have any leads for good printers in the US or the UK that can handle it?

Book is going to be hardcover, foil stamped, maybe a cloth bookmark, stuff like that.

Also looking for some packaging, but google is failing me. Something like the image posted would do.

Suggestions for my google-fu welcome! I don't know half the terms for most of this stuff.

Any idea what the going rate is to layout a 200ish page RPG?

Note even though Steven Russell of Rite Publshing ran the KS I just mentioned, its my setting and IP. Of the $7K goal, I don't know the breakdown cost of that, but I do all the cartography, development and page layout, at significantly reduced commission (since its my project, really.)

Peter Frain (http://devilmonkey77.deviantart.com/gallery/) is a confirmed artist, so it would be good if the map match the style of his art (the black and whites scenes in the gallery)

Qashya Mal, the hobgoblin town of the arid deserts. A natural amphitheater and oasis springs made this the ideal location for a regiment of hobgoblin raiders and an elite unit of siege engineers called the Diaballistae. Wealth gained through gambling of the gladiatorial games and mercenary work as engineers for other hobgoblin hordes has civilized this community of hobgoblins, more than most. Enjoy!

Ready and reporting for adventure, Captain!
 
River Hideout near Woodedge

Southwest of the small town of Woodegde, the River Bannyak, a small tributary to the River Lewyrin, winds its way from the low hills beneath the Lewyrin Forest as it heads to the Wrestless Sea at Greyport.
Cutting through gorges formed over thousands of years, hollows in the gorge walls have made perfect hideouts for the brigands who seek to relieve waterborne travellers and merchants of their coin.

Kind of cool, Xara the software company that creates Xara Photo & Graphic Designer 9 which I use as my primary graphics application to create my custom maps and map objects has mentioned my Fantasy Maps thread posted in the Talkgraphics.com forum (Xara user forum). I will also be featuring several of my Xara only created maps in the software company's featured Art Gallery. There is currently 32 artists featured in their gallery, and I will be the 33rd! Look at the "Talkgraphics" section of the linked Xara Outsider to find a link to my fantasy maps thread on the Talkgraphics forum.

Final version...
 
Hidden Shrine of the Underlord

Neath is a land where bad men dwell.  On its south coast near Sul-Gol lies the hidden shrine to the Underlord, a dark and malevolent power gaining power in the corrupted land.

This is the proper scanned, oriented and aged version.

Due to a lot of unexpected expenses, I need to get some paying art assignments to help pay for my car bills, replacing my cell phone and obviously reordering my hormone meds.

With that in mind, I'm willing to take on some digital portrait assignments for 40 dollars each, once done I will load them into a directory of my website and the purchasers can download them at their leisure. I normally charge 80+ dollars for full page! full color art but at this point I need to put together at least 600 dollars to pay for recent bills.

So this is your chance to get a portrait at a much lower price than I normally change for them (basically half off).

 I can be reached at: BreeOrlockDesigns@gmail.com

Hex Mapping test sample...

Havenland Hex Mapping

So, I've created a simple set of seamless Hex textures that suit the Havenland symbol dpi (some are transparent).  Download from images in this post.

I've knocked up a quick sample map with sporadically place symbols... just as a demo.  The colour one is straight off the bat, but the mono and sepia have been post-processed in PSPX6.

So, if you need any symbols for hex map creation than go here; http://monkeyblooddesign.co.uk/purchase

Like my previous gothic castle map, the purpose was not to create a map, rather to provide inspiration to create photo-realistic map objects for my upcoming Gothic Horror Map Icon set. I went for something more modern...

The 7th ward of the, now abandoned, State Psychiatric Asylum which is said to be the most haunted location known. Unknown to the paranormal investigators this is what can be found: (top left) padded cell inhabited by shadow people, (top 2nd) a patient room with active poltergeist activity, (top 3rd) invisible spirit sleeping in bed, (top 4th) diembodied spirit,  (top 5th) elevator shaft with a victim's spirit , (bottom left) lobodomy/electro-shock center with an aberration serving as entrance to the "other side", (bottom right) office with a pool of ectoplasm serving as the exit from the "other side". Why is there a ghost dog at the top of the stairs? One of the patients believed his was a dog and is so in the afterlife... Enjoy!

Created in Xara Designer Pro 9, the floating chair and book in the poltergeist room are the only 3D objects, everything else is vector work.

Even in my Pathfinder games, I prefer low fantasy to high, so most of my maps reflect that, somewhat - though I can go over the top now and again, as well.

That's purty.  Makes me envious not being able to do stuff like that in anything approaching a reasonable (or really even unreasonable) amount of time.

Layout Question

I have a ~96 page PDF to layout. It is broken into 10 chapters. Is there a best practice on how to tackle this work? Is it advisable to go page by page or should I go chapter by chapter? I am just curious how others approach the actual work of layout.

Yep, we are hoping to print this baby and I definitely agree that each spread needs to handled with attention to detail. I think for this I am going to use one document and with any luck get to play with GREP a bit. Thanks guys!
