More typesetting. Almost all done, except for the last bit on the timeline, which I need to do in a separate run, as I’m out of lowercase ‘i’s and number 1’s. Also the title and the colophon. This weekend I proofed what I had set, so that when I go on press I don’t have to spend two hours correcting my mistakes.

I like to spend an entire session correcting, adjusting, justifying, troubleshooting, editing, and then go home, eat, rest, come back to it later.

Things still to grapple with: where is my box of prints? Where is the tympan paper I ordered six weeks ago? (I shouldn’t go on press without it, the used stuff we’re making do with is a sad story.) Will I be able to register the linoleum block on the backside? Colors?

And then: what am I bringing to Rome when I leave on vacation next week? My good walking shoes are giving out on me.
