The First Proof Copy of the "Book"

Click on graphic to enlarge to full screen.

I have been off line for the last month. I had cataract surgery on the 25th of February. All has not gone well since then. No whining . . . let it lay.
The first "proof" copy of the book was printed. It looked good, but needed editing. G. Stewart Mathison, (cousin) volunteered and has done the final edit. I have combined his copy with my last edited copy. I have finished and will take in the combined files to the printer for a final "proof" tomorrow, Monday, March 30.
Some stats: The "Book" will be 8 1/2" X 11" trimmed slightly in the binding process. The binding is called "Perfect Binding" and is commonly used in today's print shops. It weighs approximately 2 1/2 pounds. Thats $10.35 Priority Mail or $2.93 Media Mail. There are 343 pages with approximately 220 graphics, scans, etc. There are 29 pages of color graphics. The cover design has a yellow spine to make the book stand out on the shelf. My color is blue, therefore . . . .
Let me hear your thoughts, I like input. BTW, Mary Kay and I celebrated out 58th wedding anniversary on March 26, 2009.
