Preparing For Print

The Gmund Bier paper has arrived from G.F Smith and is being trimmed to size in our studio, ready for debossing.

You may remember that the paper is produced just outside Munich, the city where three of Strigel's Tomb Guardians are kept, and a 2hrs from Memmingen where he lived. It's a beuatiful rich, textured yellow ochre, much like Strigel's landscapes. It stands out strikingly against our Leipzig made board shear. 

Proof copies at the printers.

We are also pleased to report that copies of the book have gone to be digitally printed at Imprint Digital, Exeter. These will be wending their way soon to Halberds and Maces, ahead of publication. Fear not if your name is not yet recorded at the back of the book; the list will be finalised before the paperback printing in a fortnight or so.
