Fifteen years ago my father wrote a fantasy novel that no publisher in Germany wanted to print. As Christmas present, I decided in October last year to get the book printed professionally as a hard cover. It took about nice months to do layout, copy editing and getting illustrations as well as a dust cover painted. It even got an ISBN number: 978-0-9816907-0-4. I received a palette with 380 books today and they really look great. The cover is a red linen with golden stamping and the offset print is very clear and crisp. If you can read German, most of the text is also available online, but a printed book reads much nicer.
