Less Than 24 Hours To Go!

One last update as the funding for my project draws to a close. I am still working out the upgrades on the book with the printer as I have far exceeded my goal. I want to take this time to answer a few questions that I have received as far as size and page count  goes. The size of the book will be 8" x 10" and the page count total is 120. I am upgrading to a heavier, higher quality "pearl" paper and have opted to foil emboss the title in silver on the black linen cover underneath the dust jacket. There will be 800 books printed (200 of which are limited editions) instead of the 500 I had originally planned for. Design and layout will take another month or so as well as the completion of the remaining paintings. My deadline to have everything in to the printers is December 20th and I will send out an update once I receive the proof at the end of January. I want to thank everyone out there who has supported this project over the past month as well as the last three years!  I am amazed, inspired and extremely grateful.
