I am enjoying your splendid book. It is a pleasure to have, really.
As for my project: I am still in pre-press because of the diverse
components. The service bureau worker decided I was going way over the
budget figure I mentioned to him when we started to Quark the pages with all
the illustrations. I arranged with a friend who has a Mac G3 to install
Pagemaker (she has PHotoshop already) and we are both figuring the PM stuff
The service bureau guy agreed to complete the first three booklets
(quarto-like yours), and I see PM has a Quark translator which will help
because I still need to laser print what we have -- even with the guy's
proofs. I have ledger size (8x 14 or 17) scanned as bitmap images of ship
logs and letters which I am going produce myself because as I said, the
copperplate hand is appealing. Is that crazy or what?
These I want to use as a kind of floor for a clam shell box on which the
I looked at the W. Caslon site and agree it is a wonderful typeface, a
beautiful job. The 200 bucks is not a bad price at all. Does one need both
Anyway, I wanted you to know that I am savoring Printing Digital.
