    Adriano is very protective of his identity. I, however, have his address.

    I like how the example image for "reference" is a medium sized, low-res web picture. If you're planning on printing your "book" on anything besides your parent's inkjet you're going to want images that are at least 200ppi.

    300DPI is usually the standard.

    I think his reference image was for composition and content, not size.

    to the OP : i disagree with you counting on other people's work and creativity to publish a book you will make money from. All the more so since the targeted readers for this book are the same you would have taken pictures from.

    You may be right, but the fact that he didn't specify a minimum resolution is a bad sign as far as I'm concerned.

    However, I hope he really publishes his book, it sells like hotcakes, he makes a ton of money, and puts the final nail in the coffin of this whole hipster-fixie nonsense.

    There is a moderator on this site that works at a postal sorting facility. When a member was being harassed by someone that is clearly unbalanced, another moderator made a foil hat, and had it sent through that sorting facility. No return address, and hundreds of fingerprints.
