July Update - The Book is Going to Press!
Hello, all! I have great news! The proofs got in last week, and looked amazing! I made one minor tweak to the cover and things are FINALLY going to press!
I'm ordering 3,000 books, so it will take a few weeks for the books to be printed, assembled, and shipped to the warehouse in Texas. I will be sending out your surveys in a few weeks, as we get close to time to ship everything out. I'll post another update when they go out, so be on the lookout for those things!
PHEW! It was a ton of work to get the book to this place, but everything looks great and I'm really excited for the final book! Thanks so much for being patient while I poked, and tweaked, and corrected.
(The foils on the cover look so nice!)
So, what's next?
I still have about 25 of the bookplate drawings to finish up. I've been plugging away at them here and there for a few weeks, but I'm aiming to really wrap them up this week so that they'll be off my plate and ready to go to the warehouse for fulfillment.
Once all the bookplates are done and ready to go out, I'll start work on the mini comics! The order on those is Sylvia's, Cliff's, and then Gloves. They'll be released as individual PDFs once they are complete and you'll be able to download them the same way you downloaded the artbook and volume one PDFs.
That's pretty much all for the update for this round! Thanks so much for backing this project and I can't wait to get these books into your hands!
