it’s almost ready

31 January 09


this weekend, massi had to go out of town for work.  i think this was a God thing, a heavenly kick in the pants to get me to focus solely on my book and nothing, i mean nothing, else. it has been a very productive weekend so far and tomorrow should get it completely done.  that is, if i can find the right presentation stuff-papers, binding, you know.  that stuff.  is there anywhere better than kinkos for this kind of thing?  i kind of find their binding and paper options deplorable.  so, before i bore you further with bookmaking details, here’s the stats:

proposal is done, other than a couple technical questions.

sample pages are done, other than one or two pages needing a tiny bit of tweaking.

presentation questions still need to be answered:

how many sample pages does one put in a proposal when it’s not full typed pages?  do you bind the book, or leave it loose?  what kind of paper should i use that will showcase the visual without being plain ol white paper?  can i also share it electronically, and if so how do i maintain the visual integrity?


so many questions, it looks like, i know.  but really, honestly, i’m soooooo close.

    I thought I left a comment, but maybe not.

    There are a couple of local book manufacturers in GR that might be able to help you out.

    There’s also an awesome paper company in Ann Arbor that carries bookbinding materials and has weekend seminars.

    Try Issuu for electronic use – it’s a pdf page-flipping widget that’s perfect for books.
