Today I received the first draft of my book. Looks great. There are over 400 pages which when edited by the design team will come down to 256 pages. So far the text has been checked and edited as have the diagrams, photos and templates. Now the fun begins for April who has to shuffle and resize everything to fit it into the allotted 256 pages. She has done a top job so far with deciding on the main layout and colours. I never realised how much work went into the production of a book but they want everything just right.
There are almost 2,000 diagrams in the book which on first thought seems like a lot but then when you stop and think there are 359 different blocks and if you have just the pattern plus 4 diagrams for each you are already at 1600 diagrams. Add onto that all of the photos and this is going to be one big book….. very pleasing for those who like step by step diagrams.
