Interstices & Intersections: the last month of printing

I have now entered the last few weeks of printing on Interstices & Intersections. As I finish up the final thirty press runs, Nancy will begin preparing the sheets for delivery to bookbinder Daniel Kelm at the Wide Awake Garage. Daniel came down for a visit this past week to show samples of the custom dyed goatskin we ordered for the standard binding, and to choose the seven skins needed for the leather inlays in the deluxe binding.
