This beautiful landscape perfect bound printing project features Russ Kramer’s gorgeous painting of yachts. We’re not talking about paintings of yachts resting peacefully in a port. As the artist indicates in the book, “As much as I like painting boats, it’s the human experience of being at sea that most intrigues me. That’s why, in my largest works, I try to put us right on board, among the crew, with an in-person view of the determination, or peril, or joy.”
Widely regarded as one of America’s leading marine artists, Russ Kramer’s painting are amazing. His very unique paintings are immediately recognizable. It was an honor for Publishing Xpress to print the book of these yacht paintings.

I chose Publishing Xpress after shopping around for a new printer online after the one I was using went out of business last year. I was most concerned with the flexibility in stock weight choices and, of course, the overall quality of the finished books. When I learned Publishing Xpress could produce exactly what I wanted, then received the quotation on my project, I was pleasantly surprised by how reasonable it was — less than I had been paying for the same specifications at my previous printer.
I elected to pay the modest extra fee for a press proof, and was happy I did. Due to an error on my end while preparing the .pdf file, the colors were not what I was seeing on my screen. I initially had some difficulty in figuring out the problem, and the folks at Publishing Xpress could not have been more helpful and patient in working through it with me.
I highly recommend them to anyone interested in self-publishing high-quality books.
