Yes Dialogue book in the binding room during production, May 2017

Deliveries of the next batch of Yes : Dialogue books finally began to come in last week and we have been sorting and packing ever since. We anticipate the last of the back-orders will have shipped by the end of next week.  In the meantime Simon has been sent a couple of photos taken at the plant, one when he was checking page samples and another showing the book in the binding room, where some staff worked a weekend shift to help speed up delivery to us: “As I worked at a couple of printers in the late 70s and early 80s it was nice to spend a couple of hours on the shop floor once again, and catch up a bit on some of the new technology. I was pleased in the binding room to see they had covered the work surfaces in clean paper to protect the covers of the book while they were being handled prior to protecting each copy in bubble wrap before boxing them up.”  It was also nice to see the firm had already put a copy on display in their show cabinet!  Simon managed to blag some of the uncut proof sheets for the office wall. By the way, the hair wasn’t grey when he began this project…
