It is unusual for me to make a whole bunch of books that are all the same. Even the few "editions" that I've done have never been more than a few. I am now, though, working on an edition of thirty. Quite an adjustment to switch myself into a kind of assembly-line production mode. So far...
The signatures as they were when I got them from the print shop:
Sewn with endpapers, and backed:
Boards cut and sanded (by hand, i might add, i do not have a board cutter):
Some of the cases:
The whole thing is now on hold, though. I will be heading off to PBI soon so this set of books will have to wait for me. When I get back, I'll be taking the cases to have some text embossed on the spines...then after that, I'll put them together and eventually they will all have their own Japanese-style wrap-around cases too...
