THE ART of PRINT - book update

Well after three years of ups and downs, today saw print production finally start on the 80s Casuals book. The book will take approximately 30 hours to print and once printed will be sent for finishing, which means getting the front cover gold block foiled, laminated and then folding, collating and binding completes the job. This in effect means completion during the course of next week, possibly Thursday/Friday. Together we have taken the pics, completed the write ups, sat with the designer and basically told him where to position the pics and write ups and over the last two days i personally spent 10 hours printing the book myself on a Heidelberg SM74 Lithographic machine. Hopefully the completed version will do the era justice and at the moment there is nothing out there to compare. Thanks for your patience.
