Late last week I received three advance copies of my book, The Mad Art of Caricature! from the printer via Fed Ex. These are not proofs but actual, bound press copies from the full print run, and are exactly the same as the rest of the books. The printer sends these out in advance of the shipment of the rest of the books, so the publisher can get a look at the final product. The above is a short video of me paging through one of these copies.
I am quite pleased with the printing, especially given the trouble we had with the first set of proofs and the values/color of the illustrations within. The color is great, particularly on the glossy stock. The book is heavy, weighing in at 1lb 9 oz. I would be hard pressed to ask for a better end result as far as the printing goes.
Enjoy the quick look above, and as always you can place an order at www.deadlinedemon.com.
