Paul Elliot at Zozer Games was kind enough to send me a copy of ‘Orbital’ in print from Lulu.com recently, for some artwork I contributed to the book. This is a quick supplemental review in addition to my original one I posted here.
This is the first time I’ve seen a product from a print on demand service such as Lulu.com and I’m extremely impressed!
The outer cover is glossy (this being a softcover) and the weight of the paper / pages inside is good. The layout of the paragraphs and artwork is level and consistent and the book gives an overall feel of being a quality product. If I remember correctly, the book was shipped quickly from the time Paul placed the order with Lulu.com.
The content inside has been reproduced in monochrome and the colour images only lose a slight amount of clarity, but the line art isn’t affected.
The book can be purchased from Lulu.com for $22.29 and ships in 3-5 business days.
There is something still to be said for having print copies verses PDF editions. This is most definitely a worthwhile purchase if you want to add a printed copy to your Traveller RPG collection.
