Book Proofs Arrived!!!
Happy New Year!
What a wonderful way to begin the new year with a shipment from the book printer containing proofs and a dummy book. And it is stunning! I'm not sure if that is the only word that describes this beautiful book. I enjoyed reading it for the millionth time, cover-to-cover.
The dummy book is the actual REVEALED book, though the pages are blank. The REVEALED book is stamped with a black foil and shines (or doesn't shine) depending on the light and what angle you view it at. (see photo below) The dust cover is in a previous post.
The book's designer, Philip Hawthorne, and myself went through the book again and made sure we didn't find any errors (see photo of us discussing). A few corrections were made and today the final approval was made. They begin production on the book Friday. No ETA as of yet.
On another note, today was a nicely written article about my gallery exhibit and upcoming film screening in New London, CT in The Patch.
