I am doing another sweep through the text for final edits. Didn't plan to do it, but thought it necessary. And it turns out it was a good idea. Am over halfway through.
Then I have to scan about another 500 items.
Then I begin layout (during which I have to learn how to use Photoshop and InDesign!).
But should be done in the next six months. My goal is to have it out by sometime in 2013. After over a decade of on and off work, it will be a relief.
The book (two 400-page volumes) will be all color, and the only way to do that is print-on-demand. But the company does beautiful work, and the books should look great.
