The HB Annual

I'd Buy it?... Wouldn't you?
  [vote for,

I can imagine something large, paper-backed (it's practical that way... *giggle*)... with the logo on the front... and a new one of those phrases every issue...

One scheme stands out in my mind:

The top ten ideas that year... and the top 5 from every section (which aren't included in the main top ten)... Comments are included (but possibly an editor would decided which go through - to avoid repetition and spam)...

Why not? What publisher would refuse?... or, if you don't want to sell out (now addressing HB) then why not make it completely supply on demand???... (although this would cost more?)...

oh yeah... and pleeease... more of the cartoons on the back of those t-shirts?

       Plus a 100-page appendix with all the ideas which were originally posted on the halfbakery and are now patented. (yes, it is blank).   

       I still say, publish some of our better ideas and some of the funny annotations, and it'll sell. Like the book "Retrohell" by the editors of Ben Is Dead magazine. In which the authors reminisce about 70's-80's americana/toys/culture and annotate their input about it. Wonderfully fun book.

       I can think of billions of such examples! And lets face it... a large amount of the stuff in here is better than any fun (comic) reading material on the market...?

       If all you did was put what’s here in a book, you’d have an expensive printout of a website. I think you would have to add illustrations and diagrams, preferably consistent, skillfully-rendered and distinctive. (See David Macaulay’s The Way Things Work for a good example.)

       good point AO, and phundug i have seen a few ideas that have been baked since posting

       This is more or less redundant with the eternal book idea. Once a year, perhaps, but a book nonetheless.

       there it is at the top of the page in all its glory!

       erm... yes... which is why I have at the bottom of the idea // oh yeah... and pleeease... more of the cartoons on the back of those t-shirts? //?

       I was kinda hoping this would be some sort of flowering plant or ground cover.
