Making a book is a herculean task. Countless hours are devoted to a single book—by designers, writers, curators, editors, artists, typographers, production artists, color separators, photographers, printers, paper makers, ink mixers—hours that often outnumber those spent relishing in the final product. How often do we finish a project, hit the send button, push our chairs away from our desks, and then roll right back in for the next thing—all in the same day?
Today I’m going to practice reflection. It’s been such an intense year of exciting, and frankly, life-changing projects. I hope you will enjoy some of these photos and anecdotes, and celebrate these four awesome new publications with me.
