I think it's a cool idea. I think the benefit of two page stories is that you can tell a story without having to turn the page. That way, no matter where the book is open to on the table, it'll draw people in.

I think one benefit of having other help with the writing is that it means more people will be personally invested in seeing it sell well. That means a better distribution of your photography.

As far as one picture per story or many, I think that would depend on a number of things. Obviously, the story would dictate the style. As far as the tales themselves, I could see something like Red Riding Hood lending itself more easily to a single photo (e.g., the scene with the wolf in grandma's clothing, woodsman busting in, ax in hand) than something like Snow White.

Prince Charming should definitinely be the same one throughout the story. Have you read any of the Fables comic? They do this idea rather well.

Man, the more I think about, the more I want one! I don't know that I can offer any artistic input, but I'd at the very least support you by buying one.

yeah, I know about Fables. I'm gonna try not to steal the idea too much though. Still, i think the whole thing could be really interesting, but its going to take me quite a while. I hope you're still interested whenever I get it done.
