    I agree with this. I never really gave it a thought as the content is more important to me.

    Some of the subjects I am interested in are so unique the market is to small for traditional publishers.

    Makes no difference who published, a printing house or the author.....it is the content. many many books from the 1970's-2000 were "self-published" and they were great books!!! Look at Lee Friedlander....I think more to the point are the images, text, design and ultimate idea behind the book. Today most interesting books are self published....
