An update from Steven S. Crompton
Today (Friday Sept. 18th) Roswell Bindery asked me to drive over to their facility to take look at the super deluxe limited edition hardcover. Because we live in the same town, we are lucky enough that we can do that. Ken is out of town on a trip and Rick was busy shipping the softcovers, or I suspect at least one of them would have come along. As Pre-Press person and Art Director, it falls to me to make sure these things get made correctly.
Once there, Roswell’s production manager (Jim) took me to the foil stamping station and showed me the first cover they made. I was really blown away by how cool it looked! Rather then describe it you can look at the picture. We went with the Black and Gold – which are the T&T colors.
As you can see in the close up photo, (See below) the black leatherette has a really deep texture to it. Ken St Andre picked this finish when we came to Roswell the first time to place the order. It reminded him of Dragonskin, so that had to be the choice.
It will also have a matching slipcase that will be embossed on the outside with a large image of the Demonhead logo – That should look really great. Only 100 of these are being made so the supply is very limited The vast majority of them have already been sold to the Kickstarter pledgers.
Meanwhile Roswell has told me that this book is now in the production line. They’ve already made all the covers and are now foil stamping them. I told them we wanted to get these out as soon as possible, and they plan to let us pick up batches of them as the books are finished. That will allow Flying Buffalo to immediately start shipping them out as they get done. We know you’ve all been waiting a long time for these, so we are taking whatever steps we can to expedite getting them out to you.
OK that’s the latest news from the front. Let us know what you think.
