    I own this book, and in the Introduction, it refers to a “color version of the paper book” and goes on to say that “the modern photos are all in color.” The only photos in color are on the cover of the book, and the book I purchased appears to be the only paper version available. The black and white modern photos in this book often appear less sharp and detailed than the period photos, which is quite disappointing. Is a color version of this book actually available, and if so, where may it be purchased. I greatly enjoy the book otherwise.

      Sorry about the confusion on the color/non-color photos in the above book. Actually, the (modern) photos are in color, but they don’t of course show up in color in the black & white paper book. Initially, I published this book as an ebook, where color shows up fine, and only later published as a paperbook. (I didn’t change the description because I can’t have separate descriptions for the two formats.)

      I haven’t published a color version of the paper book because the extra printing costs bump up the selling price too much, nor has there seemed to be an demand for a color version in the paper format since it’s mainly a guide book. However, I have set up this book as a “Kindle match price”, which means if you have bought the paperbook, you should be able to purchase the ebook for $1.99, where you can view the modern photos in color on a Kindle, tablet or cell phone.

      I do have one color paperbook out, Gettysburg Photos Colorized where I have colorized the period photos, but there are no modern photos in the book, which is what you are asking for. Anyway, it sells for $22.99 in paper format , and $9.99 in ebook format.

      Hope this is of some help.
