Renaissance Revit Days Away

Just a quick post this morning. Over the weekend, we made the Renaissance Revit book page live. You can visit it here. The book is in the final proofing stage and as soon as I have received the final proofs from the print house and approved them, the book goes live! It will be available on CreateSpace right away. There will be two editions of this book: one color, and one black and white. The difference between the two is ONLY in the printing. The black and white edition is the standard edition where all of the images are printed in grayscale. The color edition preserves all of the color and prints ALL images in color.

You may be wondering why two editions? Well, if I had my preference, there would be only one edition and it would be the color edition. The color just makes all of the images really pop. Also, CreateSpace (the service I use for printing) uses nicer paper on the color editions. However, the down side is cost. The color edition costs considerably more than the BW. So, if you are OK with grayscale images, then the BW edition is the way to go and costs $42.95. The Color edition is $98.95. If you can justify this extra cost, I think you will like the image quality much better. But yes, it’s expensive. My apologies for that. If you follow the link above, I do have a discount code on the book page that gives 20% off each edition. So that will help a little.

Just to be clear. The two editions are IDENTICAL in all ways EXCEPT the image color. It is the same table of contents, same text, same steps, same dataset. Just a difference in printing.

I will post additional details throughout the week. So until then, thank you for considering Renaissance Revit!

    At last! I can’t wait to get started with this book. I have a passion for revit and architecture. It is not easy to find good books that go beyond the basics in revit. I usually find complicated buildings on the internet and try to draw them in Revit. I’m really looking forward to working with your new book. Thanks for all your hard work.

      Thanks for the comment! It has been a long time coming. I am finalizing the back end right now and hope to have the sale links live in a day or so. Thanks!

    Well done sir!
    I wish this book can also be available in electronic form – that would be a lot of help, especially for me in the UK.
    All the various ‘Mastering ….” books that I have bought all last decade and this ongoing are not only not easy to come by but also not easily portable.

      Thank you.
      The book is available in the UK. In fact it is already on the site: both in the black and white and color editions.
      I understand your point about being difficult to carry around. This book is in large format size. But this was done to maximize the image size and quality. In a book like this, the image quality is critically important. I recently took down the kindle editions of my MEP books because of complaints on the image quality. It seems right now that all of the eBook formats are optimized for novels and books that are mostly text and where exact page numbers are not critical. This makes doing kindle or ePub not ideal for this kind of book. I am still exploring the issue and hope to have a solution soon. But in the meantime, I am postponing digital version.
      Thanks again.
