568 Pages - Whewww!!!!

That's the grand total of pages in the Design Directory of Bedding! My fabulous editor Madge and the talented designers and book makers at Gibbs Smith have been working hard to finish the layout and edit the text of the book and it's finally done. I just sent in my final revisions and edits and now the next step is to send it off to the printer.

I love to see how the book designer lays out the chapters. For this book she has chosen to fade out my illustrations to highlight the portion of the bed that is the subject of the chapter. Pretty cool Eh?

It is so exciting to see a book coming together with all of the bells and whistles in place.

I can't wait to show you the whole thing once it comes back from the printers as a real book! But we'll have to wait until October!
