Yeesh, the month is getting away from me! Good thing the holiday weekend is coming up. Hopefully I can crank out enough text blocks in time to get them trimmed by the lovely folks at Signature Print Services before Turkeyday.
Anyway! Here’s the status after today:
Up top are six text blocks almost ready to trim. Below are two text blocks ready to prep for binding and four finished books.
Here are the two I finished most recently:
The colors aren’t quite true here, since it’s night time, but the right one has gold fabric and a sort of orchid violet with gold brushstrokes on it. So pretty!
Here are their endpapers:
If I bind two books a day for the rest of the month, I’ll be four short. Since I should be able to bind at least three or four a day over the holiday weekend, that’s actually not too bad! The real bottleneck will be getting the text blocks trimmed.
- Cutting/prepping of materials: Cover materials almost entirely prepped! About 1/2 of endpapers prepped.
- Text blocks sewn and awaiting prep: 8
- Books prepped and awaiting casing-in: 0
- Total books cased-in: 4
- Total time: 17:24
