As a number of you will be aware I have been processing a collection of old glass plate negatives of the village given to a resident by the Kings Meaburn Parish Clerk some years ago. They date from the 1890s and show some fascinating views of the village and its inhabitants in late Victorian times. I have loaded reduced resolution images of the finished articles in the attached PDF file.
With the lockdown preventing us from hiring out the Hall or holding fundraising events for the foreseeable future, we thought we might be able to generate some funds by incorporating a selection of the images in a 2021 calendar or a photobook and selling these to order.
So… by the end of the May please would you:
– Have a look at the images
– Select your favourites
– Let me know whether you prefer the idea of a calendar or a photobook – NB: a caption giving a description of each full resolution (highest quality) image would be incorporated in both, but not inside the body of the image as in the attachment – the copyright watermarks would also be removed.
– Send me a list of your favourites (just the image numbers will do) – your top 12 for a calendar – your top 20 for a photobook
According to the likely demand we will then get quotes for production of both a calendar and a photobook and decide on the pricing (to include a reasonable markup to generate some funds).
These are also only initial ideas – other possibilities if people are interested are mounted prints, greetings cards, coasters, mugs, etc.
