Significant Progress

Posted by PaperFlock Inc (Creator)

Hello Kickstarter Backers,

I know it has been a while since the last update, I can promise you A LOT has been happening over here!

We have been running clipping masks, color correction, and retouching on hundreds and hundreds of files! And I have a layout to show you!

We are still adding captions and doing small layout tweaks, but as you can see every page of this book represents a considerable amount of work!

Many coffee table books have one picture on most pages, but we didn't feel that represented these amazing machines properly. As you can see each of our pages can be made up of many many elements, this one has 30 separate images in a 2 page layout! We are cramming as much information into these pages as we can while still respecting the amazing art.

So what's the schedule like?

We are hoping to finish the layout this year!

And get it off to Stern for Approval.

After that there will be a (hopefully short) revision process.

And once that is approved, we are off to the printers!

I know this has been a long road, much longer than we anticipated ourselves to be honest, but we are very near the finish, and I know we are making the best pinball book we have ever seen!

Thanks for your patience, Joe and Dameon, and the Paperflock Team
