Proof issues and associated delay

Big Update

The proofs have arrived, and they are not up to my standard. I'm afraid that this will delay the availability of all physical copies until mid November at the earliest.

The primary issue is that the text is too close to the spine of all of the books. Additionally, the trimming of the pages cuts too close to the page numbers on the bottom edge. I've attached some photos below.

 

 

 

 

Another downside, which is unavoidable with the standard quality book process, is that sometimes light vertical streaks in large areas of black ink appear. It's slightly distracting, but doesn't get in the way of the text itself. The premium quality books do not have this problem.

Fortunately, all of the covers look great and have no issues.

As I said in a previous update, if the physical proofs look wrong, they'll need to be sent back to layout to be fixed before being sent to the printer, which will add another two weeks to the process. This means that books should start arriving as early as mid November. I will provide updates as things progress.

  Best regards and happy gaming,
