After a full week in the studio, Cat Snapp and I are well on our way to finishing the printing of our book pages. The next part of our efforts will include checking all pages for accuracy and quality, making sure that anything I hand-typed is correct and lines up as it should with its corresponding page. After this, we will begin to build the book block by folding and sewing our pages together in the correct order, then trimming off the excess edges.
After this we will glue in the body of the book to its front and back cover, including end sheets. This will be a long process as we will have to wait for glue to dry and will have to press the books with weights to secure and ensure the craft of the process. I am excited to see it all come together and can't wait to hold it in my hands.
Today in the studio, I will be typing the colophon. Thirty-five times. I think I'll need to eat a good breakfast.
