My new book is out in hardback complete with full CD readings by Tobias Menzies and Victoria Hamilton. A fantastic production, a beautiful read and a wonderful listen.
These are ancient old printers still in use at Hastings Printing Company where my book is being printing, but now on modern machinery.
After checking the front cover colour (made of several blues and greens) the go-ahead is given. Press the button – its noisy but exciting. Checking the front cover is an artform; total precision and professionalism.
Off it goes! At lightening speed all the covers are printed, these will then be laminated on to the hardback frame before being bound and dressed in a dustjacket.
