A Look at the Final Printed Book!

September 12th, 2011 | Posted in News

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.

  6. Lee Fortuna says:

    Hey Tom did I see on the very first page of your new book an illustration/endorsement by the great Jack Davis? The book looks great Tom & I will be ordering it soon. This book should really be on the racks of Barnes & Noble as well as art supply stores like Dick Blick! Best of luck!

    • Tom says:

      Yes, Jack did a little word balloon blurb for me and gave me permission to use some of his art in the book. To say he is one of the all-time great cartoonists and human beings would be an understatement.

    Hey Tom. Just from watching this video, I can tell that your book is going to be by far the best instructional caricature book out there. I’ve got a few, some good, some ok, and quite a few awful, but I can tell that you put a lot of work into your book, and the end result looks great! I will be ordering a copy very soon. Congratulations!
