Hi to all!

This is the Very Starting Point for an (IMHO) exciting project. A Fan Book about Blade Runner. Abook made by fans to fans. No masses here.

Main subject: props. The real ones (screen used) and the fan mades.

In this project you could say your interests, subjects you would see in, what you could offer (pictures, documents, real props, etc.), and so on.

The book dimensiones and weight are a very important issue. It determines costs.

Shipping is an issue too. I live in Spain, thus, ALL (about 95%?) will be shipped internationally. Then, cost is an issue...

Choosing right size, number of pages and paper will be an important task.

Color, B/N? Well, main secton of the book will be devoted to production shots of the 32 cars. All these pics are B/N. But... perhaps others sections of the book will be more feasibles to be at full color... Costs. Ever costs here! I need to have quotes from my printer to knoe if color will be an option or not.

Binding. Also to choose... from paperback (the 1st option, I think) to wired, thru hardcover and so.

Run. I cannot do more than 200 books or so (it depends on costs, but, I htink this is the number I will afford, for now). ANY ONE interested MUST SIGN UP in this forum NOW. No money to send. Simply, SIGN UP, as interested. Indicate if you will want 1, 2, 3 books... whatever. I need a minimum to make it real. The exact minimum number is not clear now.

But... what will be included in the content? the mission of this book? Well, I wanna include all about detection of props in the movie (and from the Final Cut release, this is easier than ever). Also, I wanna include info about real props available here and there, and collectors that owns this kind of pieces. Prop makers. People who knows how to make a cast, a paper prop, etc. I think this is a very good info about this hobby called Blade Runner. Also, another subject will be how to identify props in the movie.... and find them in the real world. It's not easy to find a Braun Multipress or Czar Smirnoff bottle... por example.

And other subjects you could suggest, of course.

From all these, I will compose an ideal layout with text and pictures, calculate an aproximate number of pages, and all of them will pass thru printer considerations to give me a cost for volume.

To control and archive all the pictures, ideas, texts, and discussions about this, I made a mini-forum site in my own server. Here you have the link:

http://www.mybladerunner.com/forum

The first thing I need to know is the interested people. If the number is enough to put the printer machines on, I'll do the rest!

Of course, you can comment any point about hits project HERE. I don't wanna hurt this forum in any way. But I think my own forum will be a tool for me to get all the info around this project all together. Will do the work of syndication I myself, no matter.

Thus, 1st step is to sign up in the forum page and say "Hi! I'll be interestd in your book! 1, 2, 3 volumes...". Price is unknown for now. I only wanna know *interest*. Then, I'll have quotes about production (next week I think) and perhaps could fix a price.

All help and aid will be welcomed. From logo an title ideas, to contents. I will be glad to have all of you in the book. Prop makers, prop identifiers, and prop fans!

More to come....
Joan
