We Are On Track!

Dear backers,

As you might know, the book was printed last week and the sheets are currently drying. Once they are ready to be cut, the cover will be prepared and the book bound together. We expect the whole shipment to be sent to Sweden in the end of November - just as planned! Exciting :-)

Some of the sheets after printing, there were about 20 piles like this.

The poster collections were printed as well, and it was a joy to see some of the best images blown up from both volume 1 and 2! Below is a colour-matching collage from the printer (giving you a hint on most of the images included).

  

What is happening now?

Right now we are preparing the Bookmarks and Stickers for print, as well completing the Chip Music CD (featuring some great SID and YM tunes)! These were all less time-critical items, which were "put on hold" to make sure the book was completed in time.

The PDF version of the book will be the last thing completed. I want to make sure it's done properly for digital RGB viewing, unlike the book printing document which contain CMYK-colour-images as well as many other details and solutions optimized for paper printing.

The Survey

Most backers have completed the survey, and alterations in your printed backer name is no longer possible. You can still alter your shipping address, but I will close this feature on the 20:th of November to prepare for shipping. Reminders will be sent out to the people who yet haven't completed the survey.

Have a great day!

kind regards, Klas

      Coool!! Nice to see a project progressing that fast. Ok, I mostly back games, and obviously they need more time. I can't wait to get the pdf! :D
