It is one week until the SCBWI conference in Rocklin. I'm all ready, but I hit a snag last week as I loaded my new presentation book with images. I wasn't happy with the quality of my new book, so I reluctantly set to work searching for a better one.
It is nearly impossible to buy a presentation book without seeing it in person, but because I live 100 miles from the nearest art supply store, I often have to shop online for what I need. The most important thing to me are the pages. I don't like thin and flimsy and that's mostly what I'm finding. The thickest page sleeves I've found have been in Prat books. I've been using their books for almost 30 years, but they seem to have changed their sleeve quality more recently. Here are my latest findings:
|My best presentation book - Prat Start with thick clear pages.|
|This Robert Ware book has flimsy pages which ding.|
|The new 24 page Prat Start with "linen" cover.|
|Old style presentation book with page snagging feature.|
Please feel free to share your favorite presentation books. It's always helpful to hear firsthand experiences!
