The Map is here! and more progress
The final piece of the creative puzzle is here. Above is an original hand-drawn map that was created by the talented Rachel Nachmani, an up-and-coming artist, specifically for our book. It shows the location of the numerous cities that are mentioned in the text.
Besides that, I've uploaded the text and cover of the book to the printer for initial review. It goes through a human reviewer, then a computer review for file print quality and then another human reviewer. After each review I'll be given feedback and the opportunity to correct anything they point out (mostly technical printing and formatting issues). After everyone (including their computer program) is satisfied, they print a physical proof for me to see in my hands, review and give final approval.
Will keep you posted.
Thanks again for all the support!
