With the weather looking awful today – heavy thunderstorms with a chance of locusts – I knew the joint stool books would arrive from the printer. That’s why Lost Art Press has invested heavily – perhaps more heavily than any other publishing company in the world – in plastic tarps.
Sure enough, as large drops of rain began to fall, the truck pulled up to the driveway.
Luckily, the driver was strong, affable and good with a pallet jack. And thanks to our extensive investment in infrastructure (e.g. more tarps), all the books are now under roof.
We will start packing them up tonight and the first batch will go into the mail tomorrow.
In addition to the new size – 9” x 12” – the full-color printing and the dust jacket, there are a couple other changes you might notice. Each book is shrink wrapped to protect it. And we are using a new custom corrugated package to mail the books. They’re ribbed for protection.
I hope you enjoy the book as much as I did. I can’t wait for you to read it.
