Almost there! or here, for you.
So, if you have been following along on Facebook (Interrobang Letterpress -- like them and see the incredible photos!), you will know that the presswork is done on the guts of the book. So far it only took five times longer than Michael anticipated. The cover remains to be printed, the pages cut, folded and sewn and it will be ready for you! Let me pause here in the technical report to say something more emotional -- it is beautiful. You will not be disappointed. It is so beautiful that we are going to attempt to interest a fine books seller in a few of the unclaimed copies. I'll keep you posted on that!
As for getting your bookie-wookies, I am intending to have a book party for local folks to pick up their copies if they wish, but details on that are still to be determined. The rest of yous should be able to get them in under a month.
Here's the link again for the over 100 shots of the process: http://www.flickr.com/photos/interrobang918/sets/72157628126851534/with/6792884335/
