No plastic sleeves

No Plastic Sleeves is a great blog set up by Danielle Courier where she displays and evaluates photographers' and designers' portfolio packages. She's just published a book with all her knowledge summed up in 270 pages. From the blurb:

This text will guide you through the complete process of conceptualizing, designing and developing all the interconnected aspects of your total portfolio package:

- Objectively evaluate and edit your work
- Develop a distinguishing self-brand concept
- Understand and apply effective design strategies
- Create a custom-made portfolio book
- Translate and extend your ideas into an online portfolio
- Plus develop integrated self-promotional materials and marketing strategies

It's available for pre-order on Amazon, and is released at the end of the month. You can preview the table on contents and introduction on her blog. I've just ordered my copy, and I'll post my thoughts here once I've had a chance to read it. But if the quality of advice is as good as the blog then I'm pretty sure I'll be a happy customer.
