I'll never stop feeling chest pains when a new book arrives. So many things have the potential to go wrong. Particularly in this book's case - it's the only one I've EVER soft-proofed. That is, went ahead with the printing with only a digital sample of the final thing. It's risky business, but Rich and I have gotten the layout process down to a pretty smooth system, so I had faith. And at first glance, things came out just the way we wanted.|
Photos don't quite do it justice, but the colors look SPANKIN'. I am pleased. :)
Damn, that looks good Mere!
this book calls out to me o_o
HUZZAH! They look great! <3
YEAH! looks awesome! and green is my favorite color.
mine too! I was really anxious to do a green one, but I'm forcing myself to stagger primaries with secondaries. There is a method to my madness. o_o
Yay! Looks lovely!
Dagnabbit I keep being in the middle of something when you call BAD FRIEND AUGH. And now I am in Seattle. MER WE WILL HANG OUT I SWEAR TO GOSH
haha, no worries. You missed a really good lasagna and a really bad movie though!
Holy cow! That looks fantastic in printed format! Cover/Back cover are incredible!
It's so pretty and green.
I LOVE the cover of this one. Can't wait to see the real thing!
I can't wait to pick it up at MoCCA. :)
The results look gorgeous!

Soon I will also be holding an octopus pie book at weird angles.
I can't wait to get a copy! The book looks wonderful!
Looks great ! I'm gonna buy me one of these babies !
Cool! Can't wait to pick up a copy!!
It was great meeting you!
Looks really awesome, can't wait to get my hands on one. Green is my brother's new wife's favorite color! It's a sign!
(But: putting the text "And at first glance, things came out just the way we wanted" and then a cut tag immediately after was... misleading. Although maybe it was just me.)
It looks great! I can't wait to get it this summer (along with vol 2). What printer did you go with? Because I was looking at our copy of vol 1 today and I like how it is not glossy printed and the paper stock, we want to print our small cats like that one day.
See you soon!!!!!
