Last week David Caines; my designer and I went over to Wales to visit the great people at Gomer to check in on the printing process and do a final check of the proofs.
It was fascinating to see the whole process and WOW I couldn't ask for more eye popping luscious colours - I'm so happy with the quality - its well worth doing things properly!
And so exciting to finally see my work in print - blimey they get through up to 150 of these sheets to get the colours right - thats a lot of recycling but I carried as many back as I could manage - they'll make great wallpaper!
Dillan our printer fine tuning every page.
These are the 'end-papers', I've learnt some new words doing this project!
The printing plates are really cool - wish I could have bought these back with me.
All printed and ready to go - one final proof to check although I can't imagine we'll be able to change anything now and then it just needs binding before I have 500 books landing on my doorstep!
The official launch party is on Wednesday the 18th October at the Bethnal Green Working Mens Club.
