As the title of this update suggests, reMIND is officially in the printers hands now. Chris (my designer) finished up everything early this week and we uploaded all the files to the printer on Wednesday morning. Everything is in motion now and I still haven't approved the final cloth color. Gulp! We are working on getting samples as close as we can to the color I want without special ordering some super expensive fabric.
Hopefully soon I'll be able to show some pictures of the early proofs but I'm not sure how soon that will be.
Now, just to clarify things. Even though we have started book production it will still be 2 to 3 months before I get all the books in hand because they will be shipping from China on a big slow cargo boat and clear customs.
Once the books are printed, I'm going to get a few airmailed to me and I'll make sure to take some good pictures to show you. I have some cool new announcements about how I'm making these books even more special that I'll share in one of the next updates.
Getting closer every day!
