Photos with Your Proposal

When a publisher asks you for a book proposal with instructions to send copies of photo's, how should I send those photo's? They want hard copy sent through U.S. Postal service!

I’m not sure if I’m understanding your question correctly since the answer seems so easy to me. If your proposal is requested via hard copy and there are photos involved, then your photos should be sent via hard copy.

If the photos are an integral part of your book (it’s a photography book, for example) I would suggest sending actual prints rather than prints on standard paper so the publisher can get a better feel for the quality of the photo.

The flagrant abuse of apostrophes in the question makes me somewhat concerned about the legitimacy of this writer's publisher. Please do check your publisher out on Preditors & Editors and the Absolute Write forums before continuing with this project.

Maybe the question has more to do with the arrangement/identification of the photographs?

If I were the author, I'd be wondering how and whether to mark the photos for identification; and whether to send a stack of loose photographs, or to try and affix them to paper in some logical form.

I've never been in this situation, so haven't a clue, but it strikes me that this might be a good time to call up the editor, and say, "How do you want to see these?"
