Here are some current status updates:
20th Century Ghosts Limited Edition Update:
Last week, I approved the “folded and gathered” stage for the signed and slipcased Limited Edition hardcover of 20th Century Ghosts by Joe Hill. I’m often asked for photos of this stage, so here are a few for future reference:
The signed and slipcased Limited Edition is officially done at the printing plant and is now with the bindery. We’re about two weeks later reaching this step than I had planned for because the mill for the special order paper stock was six weeks late delivering the order. (Demand for the stock had been down due to production delays at various publishers thanks to the COVID-19 situation around the world.)
The slipcases are still on schedule to be completed the week after Thanksgiving, so it’ll just be a matter of when the bindery can be done with their work. These binding jobs always take longer due to the spine hubs, etc, but they’re working as fast as they can without sacrificing quality. I’ll know our ship date by the time I post the December update.
20th Century Ghosts Lettered Edition Update:
The Lettered Edition is moving along nicely. The page gilding process is handled by an outside specialist, and the gilded book blocks returned to the hand-binder last week. I’m thinking the March 2021 ship date might turn into February, but I’ll confirm that when they’re closer to finishing the work.
The Night Country by Stewart O’Nan:
The book is designed and with our proofreaders now, and the signature sheets are headed out the door today to the first person who needs to sign. We’re right on track for the June 2021 publication date.
Unannounced 2021 Projects:
We have started two books for 2021 into production, and both will be announced in the first half of next year.
Thank you, as always, for your continuing support!
