This is an advance copy of Pickathonography, the book I designed and produced in collaboration with photographer Tim LaBarge this spring. The printer we worked with on this book is so accurate with color that the experience of receiving the printed book is a lot different than it used to be years ago. Instead of finding out what the book looks like in print, you find out that the book looks just like you thought it did! This is, of course, very convenient, though it removes a bit of the thrill of receiving the printed piece. The spine, though... the spine is still a surprise. And this one turned out just how I wanted it to.
