Hardbacks arrive at the end of the month

Aug 13, 2010 | George Fairbanks

I just got word from the printer that the hardbacks are due to arrive around August 31. That means they’ll be for sale at Amazon maybe a week later.

The printing job is kind of a leap of faith. I did get a proof of the insides and a proof of the cover, separately, but no complete book. And the process for creating the proof is different than for creating the real book, which is printed on an offset press. And what if the cover alignment isn’t right – will the spine text be off-center? Let’s just hope it looks good.
