Yesterday, usmu was here to discuss the first publication by drukgedoe: a small book with some of his poems. We discussed the font to be used, colors of the ink, the type of binding, the measurements and the paper to be used. Not only that, but we also did the printing of the first page! We'll be making 50 books, and after seeing how much work it was, usmu understood why I'm not going to do reprints. ;)

It was hard work, but it was very inspiring to discuss these things, offer suggestions and work out a strategy towards an end-result that will make everybody proud.

No pictures, because I want to keep it a surprise!

Let me know how that works out. I would like you to print my book, but only as many times as you think it's fun.

Thanks! But my press is not suited for printing whole pages of text -- not only is it a lot of work to set a whole page, I don't have that many letters either.
If I were you, I'd print it on a good double-sided laserprinter (I have one, so I could do it for you). Then I'd be more than happy to bind it for you in an attractive way.

:D I understand.

When the paperwork gets through and the book is a go, I'll get you the manuscript in PDF. I'll need to know what format you'll need. I have it in a 5.25 x 8 inch format, but I suppose you'd prefer A5?

I have ways to re-order an A4-PDF into an A5-booklet. It's one of those things that I have a script for. :)

I don't have an A4 pdf. Not with all the chapters and the index and everything on the right pages and the right margins. I could make one, but that seems like a lot of work if you're just going to change it into something else again... Let me see what I can do.

Wat leuk zeg, dat je je eerste opdracht binnen hebt. Veel succes ermee, en ik kijk uit naar het resultaat.
