By and by our book is taking material shape. The page design has been tweaked by layout artist James Berrangé, Resolution Colour is preparing final colour spreads to create PDFs for the printers, Tien Wah in Singapore, and Graphicraft is almost done with the sample (or dummies as they are called in the trade), hand binding.
Book blocks, or unbound books, will be delivered to us in Cape Town around mid-May, when the men and women at Graphicraft will begin their work of making completed products.
Within the next two weeks we will have our pay portal live on our website and then our shop will open for business. Anyone placing a pre-publication order will receive a hefty discount on the R3 500-00 ($350-00) retail price. In the mean time drop us a line if you would like to place and order.
But more of this later… for us it is thrilling, beginning to see the product of our planning and labours over the past two years taking material form. And I can say, the real thing exceeds our expectations.
