Artwork Done!

I finished remastering all 334 pages of the book! Hooray! They are being sent off for editorial now, and hopefully soon we will get into the design phase.

The Dropbox folder looking real fresh.

Other tiny updates:

- I've gotten the quotes for all suppliers for the rewards.
- I've sent off the order for the letterpress postcards, and will soon do the same for the bookmarks and print postcard.
- The enamel pin will have to wait a little longer because, being a larger object than the paper stuff, it has more logistics attached to its fulfillment.

I'll post photos of the letterpress (which I'm super excited for!) and the bookmarks/postcard as they arrive.

Until next time,
