Yesterday, I travelled to Doncaster to see the book go to press. I've done a number of press passes in the past, but never for one of my own projects, so this was pretty exciting.
Fittingly, South Yorkshire has just moved into tier 3 of COVID restrictions, and this entailed full-time mask-wearing and extra social distancing.
I've been working with Kingsbury Press to make this a really special book. It took an extra round of wetproofs to make sure we got the most out of the images and found right paper stock. But now I'm really pleased with the results.
The book is being printed on the latest generation Heidelberg Speedmaster printing presses. It's an amazing piece of technology and the results are amazing.
Now only a few more days before the finished book arrives!
