The Ceres book is in the final stage of production before going to the printers – layout.
And I’m discovering that layout takes a lot longer than expected! The most time-consuming part of layout is captioning the photos. What do they show, when did it occur, and have I obtained permission from the photographer? Getting these details correct actually takes an amazing amount of time.
The good news is that I’ve finished page layouts for chapters 1 through to 6 and I’m on the last chapter now. But this chapter is taking longer than the others, as it covers the history of each individual Ceres aircraft (all 21 of them).
Here’s a preview above – and yes, the book includes colour profile artwork by Juanita Franzi Aero Illustrations!
