Drover's Wives off to print!

It’s always a big day, sending a book to print, regardless of how many times we do it. There is no turning back now - except for the proof check I suppose. 

This book has been five years in the making. It was first submitted as an entry to Viva la Novella then appeared as part of Seizure’s AltTxt Project. It is now a beautifully designed book (so beautifully designed it couldn’t be an ebook given the current technology). 

This has been one of the most challenging typesets ever – even though I’ve been typesetting for nearly fifteen years across narrative and illustrated books. Ryan’s jokes are so subtle and so dependent on the correct execution to be understood. It has been a long dance with Ryan correcting me, politely, at every step.

It’s out of our hands now and into yours from July.
