Well everybody, it's been a crazy ride and I'm proud to say that we are FINISHED! Each one is being shipped out tomorrow in a special box, complete with a chapbook, a cool card thingy, and a thank you note!!! ^^
Each book has been binded, cut out, pasted and all of the rest of it by hand-- with the exception of the print on the pages of course-- that's done by machines and stuff. ;) We spent hours in Megan's garage working on these things. Each cover is uniquely painted and cut out, the inside covers have cool comic strip pictures of us smashing some TVs, and all of the art and poetry is inside like we said it would be.
There is a card thing we made that is just a front to back of our title/ending with two pictures of us on it, because those were going to be the covers-- but we thought that the covers looked so cool the way they were with just the paint, we'd leave them.
We really went more DIY on this thing than I thought, and learned A LOT about how much it actually takes to make books, and create something like this -- so the next time we do a project, we'll have a little more experience and hopefully things will get done faster.
Thank you for being so patient everybody! I hope all of you enjoy the book, we worked really hard to make each one-- and the best part is that they're all unique! ^^
Here are some pictures of all this stuff!
