For the edition of poetry books that I'm working on (which I mentioned here last month), I had to take the book covers to Gaspereau Press to get the text foil stamped onto the spines since I don't have that kind of equipment here.
I got a little tour, and they have the coolest sewing machine!
Gigantic, though. I don't think I'll be getting one of those any time soon. Besides, I like sewing by hand!
Here we are setting up the foil stamping equipment to do my book covers.
Gary did all the work, I just "supervised." So after a couple hours, I came away with thirty foil stamped book covers. And they are all cased-in now. Although the project still is not complete since each book is going to have a Japanese-style wrap-around case, and those are still in production!
