Printing the Book

Hello Kicksters,

I want to send a quick update from Concord, New Hampshire where I have been spending the week watching the book come off the press at Capital Offset. We've been making steady progress on the 21 signatures that make up the book. Ensuring the print quality and colors are spot on. After writing, designing, proofing, editing, producing, and everything else which went into this it's amazing to see the book come together.

I wanted to share the process with you so I put together a little video, you can view below. (For those that are curious the soundtrack is The XX)

I have also posted a set of photos to flickr.

The printing should be finalized this week and the printed pages will be sent to the Acme Binding next week where the signatures will be stitched, sewn together, and glued to the covers.

Thanks again for all of your support! I'll be keeping of you posted with the progress.
