How does this all work?
Through an initial consultation Bespoke Chronicles will help you determine the scope of your project — what content, sources and general look and feel you’re aiming to achieve. Together we’ll discuss budget, deadlines and realistic timelines for the completion of your project.
We’ll provide research support, conduct interviews, write, edit, organize photos and other visuals. And then with your input, we’ll design and layout your book and manage the production process. If you’d prefer to do some of these tasks on your own to lower costs, we’ll work to guide you and keep the process and project on track.
We’ll be sure to carefully manage your Bespoke Chronicles project from start to finish. Here is a typical scenario:
Initial project consultation
Interviewing and recording
Editing and shaping the transcripts into an engaging narrative
How much does it cost?
Just as every person and their distinct set of experiences and stories is unique, every Bespoke Chronicles book is unique. There is no template. Instead, we seize the opportunity to ensure the story and the people behind it define and direct what ultimately is created. Of course that means working within your budget. So, how much does it cost?
As you might imagine, the answer to this question is rather like asking how much a trip to Europe will cost. It depends. It depends on how many interviews, how much research, how much photo organization and editing is required. It depends on how lengthy or detailed your story is and how many people might be involved in the telling. It depends on the final product — the number of pages, the quality of paper, the kind of binding…
In the end, you determine what your budget is and we’ll work within it. And we'll be thorough enough in our communication to keep things crystal clear. Through our initial consultation we’ll discuss your ideas, timelines and your budget and we’ll work with you to lay out a workable plan that meets your needs.
