BME Covers Book 1998-2008

I’m happy to announce that I’ve finished a little quickie project, something I’ve been meaning to do for ages, a little (140 page or so) book, full color, 8.5″x11″, softcover, containing all of the cover images that I had a part in choosing, between 1998-2008, which is about 1,200 images in all. I will announce it formally on ModBlog in about a week, but I want to wait until I get my copy of it from the printer so that I can properly review it and post some pictures of the actual book. But if you’d like to buy one, you can get it for $39.99 (I get about $5 of that by the way, which I then split with Rachel, so on the whole this is for fun, not so much for profit) at this link:

Get the book “BME Covers 1998-2008″ her for $39.99

You can also download the PDF file (24 meg) for free here:

That PDF file doesn’t contain the cover pictures and it of course looks a zillion times better it print, but if you want a copy to preview or to look at on an eReader, feel free to download it for free. I had lots of fun making the covers as photo mosaics made up of various cover images, so if you want to take a closer at them, the links below take you to VERY LARGE IMAGES.

    Just ordered my copy. I’m very much looking forward to browsing through the fantastic photos from a time when BME was at its best.

  3. This brought back so many great memories. Thanks for making it, Shannon. I loved these years. I remember almost every one of those covers :)

    Wow, great flashback!
    I took the first picture on page 16 of my sister (double chin piercings)…fun to find in there!

    I’ve just found the one I was on: November 6th 2000! I’d just put up my IAM page the day before and you must’ve spotted the photos I’d been uploading to it, including that one wearing the pale green BMEBoy T-Shirt (which I still have). Happy days!

    Got my copy a while ago. Seems like the files didn’t transfer properly or something, lots of missing letters and Squares instead of text.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
