Just received my copy of the book! It's beautiful . . . I can't wait to read it.
the card is just fine. Only the engraving was mostly flattend out. Don´t worry about it. =)
We still have a few print and bookbinding shops around the area. Yep.
So glad the card arrived, what did you mean by "the card barley survived traveling around the world"? was it mangled or folded?
Resources for the information covered in the book are on my two engraving blogs, so you can surf through those anytime and see:
Techniques in the book primarily cover how to make art for engraving (think pencil and paper), and how that gets converted to digital files appropriate for the commercial engraving trade.
Germany has a rich, long history of engraving (as I am sure that you know), maybe just poke around in your home town and see if there are any engraving shops around and go chat with them.
My book is pretty much about engraving for the stationery industry.
Also ordered the book now that it showed up on amazon Germany. Any tool tips that i can already go out to get while i wait for it to arrive?
Got my postcard here in Germany last week. :) The engraving on the card barley survived traveling around the world but the stamp just looks so nice anyway. :)
Congratulations! I'm excited to see this funded!
Thank you so much for backing my project!
I will post the date and time for the Hunter Bee signing in Millerton, looking forward to seeing you there!
I am so excited about your tour and cannot wait to see you in Millerton, NY!
Yes, this answers my questions. Thanks, Will. We're almost there!
Feel free to bring in your copy for an autograph, I'm delighted to sign your book no matter where you purchase it.
The tour, as with the book, is like a survey. It will cover how engraving is done but it is in no way advanced, more to get people's feet wet engraving-wise. Loads of Q & A, which is the point. Its also the point to bring novices, those merely curious, and advanced, experts wishing to share their enthusiasm and talents.
The actual presentation portion of each venue will differ according to what that venue thinks will be the most effective. I'll post more specifics for each location as I know them.
Does this answer your question or questions?
Should we wait to buy the book at the tour locations or is it OK to buy the book on Amazon and then bring it to get signed? Also, is the tour going to focus on the "for Nerds" aspect of engraving in that it will be more technical/advanced?
