I've considered an e-book... although I'm pretty sure if I distributed it as a plain PDF, I'd only sell one copy...
You wanna point me at some distribution/format options?

Thanks

I will ask some folks I know...

As for the statement that this is better as a coffee table book, I definitely agree. I'd like to have both formats, actually! :)
