We have just finished reviewing the PDFs sent by the publisher in their final format. The result is really great! We are really satisfied with the work done by the graphic designers, but we asked for dozens of minor corrections: typos that we had never seen before although we had triple-checked everything, and some page layout changes. The main issue with Schiffer Books is that text and matching images are sometimes on different pages, making reading more difficult. We have tried to adress these problems as much as possible, without asking for too many changes. In the end we should have a great book!

We also added an index, which should prove really useful for readers. Unexpectedly, this was a huge work, delivered in less than a week to meet the deadline. Now we know the real meaning of sleep deprivation!

The release date has been postponed to August 28th. We think it will not move again, as the book is now almost ready for printing.

You can check it out on the all-new Schiffer website:

We hope we will be able to show you sample pages soon, so keep an eye on this blog in the next weeks!
