January 26: We've received the "folded and gathered" version of the book from the printer. This is a one-time pre-press printing they do to make sure everything is just right. The pages are printed in the “signatures” of 16 pages (a signature is a grouping of pages that are printed together), all of the color artwork is printed individually, the endpapers are printed via a full-color test printer, and then everything is gathered together in the order dictated by the spec sheets we sent the printer at the beginning of production. They then send this entire bundle to us for confirmation and verification. Once we approve everything is correct, they begin the "real" printing process.
