It’s great to see a book in that format – ready to be examined, scrutinised, chopped and chiselled into the final product. Exciting times!
I think it’s only the second hardcopy I’ve printed of this book. Compare that to the giant stack created by books 1 and 2. My process is much more streamlined now. :)
