Designing, publishing, printing... [part 12]

Woah. How can I put it? It's been a long week -- like 12-hour days. I am so ready for the weekend.

First a sneak peak at two spreads from D'licious Magazine

pages 8 - 9


pages 10 - 11

D'licious Magazine--Final proofs went to the printer earlier this week and should be in bindery by now. Sorry, for the printer-ese. Once a publication is approved for printing the magazine follows a rather simple process:
pre-press - generates the metal plates used for offset printing. In the magazine's case, four plates are needed.
printing - that's obvious. Lots of paper. Lots of ink. Lots of heavy machinery.
bindery - magazine signatures (a single signature is sixteen pages; eight on front, eight on back) are folded, cut and stapled
delivery - again this is self-explainitory

So, see you at the release party! Tickets are $25 a person ($35 at the door) and covers food, beverages, magazine and entertainment.

Essay Collection--The book sold out as of Tuesday night. It is now in it's second printing and is still selling consistantly. This fact amazes me. I didn't expect book sales to be this steady (on average 30 to 50 copies daily) after three months. Especially, since there is no retail distribution as of yet. Come to think of it, why consider retail sales if it is selling well?

I'm working on other publishing projects which I will detail later.
