One step closer
November 9, 2008
On Saturday, I received a copy of my test book that I had previously mentioned. Overall, I’m quite pleased.
I do printing through a company called Blurb. Sure, there are some things that I’ll need to adjust for the final version, but it’s still fun holding a physical version of the work in progress. Blurb recently introduced an option for new heavier paper, which I’ve used for the test book. The quality is noticeably improved with the 100-pound paper over the standard 80-pound option.
For my purposes, going with a 7 by 7 inch book was a good idea. It fits nicely in the hand or on the coffee table. The black linen cover under the dust jacket is sleek and sturdy, while the jacket itself is printed and formed well.
I’ll be studying this test copy and getting some more feedback. And, of course, I’ll keep up the shooting throughout the coming weeks.
