Now playing on YouTube, Episode 4 of my series of ‘Designing an Artbook’. A 10 minute Episode highlighting the ‘Contents & Preface’ parts of my second ArtStory book . Please view, subscribe to help make this a successful YouTube video art project and subsequently the successful self-publishing of the “24 Album Covers” art book. This art/story book will be a 9.5 x 9.5, 100 page book with 48 full color images and 24 short stories.
As I work on filming a trailer for my YouTube channel, some examples of art to give credibility are recommended and I as I combed through examples I might be able to use I came across a trove of my early photography days. This is a shot I might consider as one of several art image examples for the YouTube video trailer.
ok folks, the 3rd episode of Creating an ArtStory book is now available on YouTube. This episode looks at the design work for the half title and title page of my ‘to be’ self-published “24 Album Covers” book plus an example of one of the 48 full color images within the pages.
The Creation of an Art/Story book from conception to a self published book. Highlighting the artistic design, writing stories, computer applications, art images, layout for conversion to PDF, and a crowdfunding campaign to convert the book project to printed form. This episode focuses on the Frontmatter part of the Art book with the design work of the 1/2 title and full title page.

I have uploaded ‘Episode Two’ to YouTube concerning the second ArtStory book I am in the process of creating and will also be offered through Kickstarter in 2021.
This series of video’s will show viewers how the book “24 Album Covers” was conceived and all the-in-progress steps involved from conception to layout, designs, writing, parts of a book, in progress paintings, the video filming and editing, the learning process of InDesign and Photoshop, the digital scanning, transfer to a PDF file, the printing of the book, and of course the building of the Kickstarter Crowdfunding campaign.
I hope to also film interviews with various persons directly involved with the workings on different facets of the book.
I will use these updates to keep you informed of the “24 Album Covers” ArtStory book episodes as they are filmed and posted to YouTube as well as the future Kickstarter campaign dates.
I hope that you take the 10 minutes of the video run-time to view and if you haven’t please subscribe to the my YouTube channel.
Thank you and be safe in these still stressful times
I posted an image and text concerning the creation and posting of a ‘Link’ to my first YouTube episode on Sept. 3, 2020.
I have upgraded my WordPress plan so that I am now able to post ‘video’s’. Given the upgrade I would like to post that First Episode here on WordPress. That way when I do post the next episodes they will be in sequence and correspond with the YouTube channel postings.
I also noticed that with the upgraded WordPress plan that the ‘Link’ I posted Sept. 3, 2020 now plays the video as well as making any other adjustments that are included in the upgrade.
Over the past several months I have been researching the concept and possibility of a second ArtStory book. It has now entered the stage where it has become a viable project. As part of the promotional aspects I am creating a series of YouTube videos to let viewers see the process of creating my second ArtStory book, “24 Album Covers”.
I uploaded the first video yesterday, “Episode One, Second Book Beginnings”.
The video project will highlight the progress of creating a self-published ArtStory book from beginnings to launching a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign to working with the printer for publication. At YouTube just type in Craig L Haupt.
The first few video’s will be uploaded about three weeks apart while I work with the learning curve of writing scripts, filming, relaxing in front of the camera, lighting, and film editing process besides working on the book text and design itself. With time and experience I hope to figure out a one or two week posting schedule as I solidify a second Kickstarter campaign during the spring of 2021.
