Photo of (l.-r.) Rick, David, Lew, me here last week, working on book cover. Today Rick, Lew, and I are going over the pages one last time, and Rick will FTP (send via computer) pages to our printers in Hong Kong on Monday. Our color tests seem to be right on. Next week we get the cover finished (still up in air). With 1,300 photos to choose from, it’s an “embarrassment of riches.” It’s been a long haul, starting 2 years ago, and the last say, 8 months, in production. When the cover goes off, it’ll be a huge burden lifted. (The book looks spectacular!)
I’ll be going to Hong Kong in late October for the press check. In bookstores February 2012.
