Seattle Sketcher book layouts have arrived
It's an amazing feeling when you've been working on a book for a while and the first set of page proofs arrives. The exhilaration soon gives way to worry, though, as you start second guessing the selection of this or that image, the size of the typography or the way a caption reads. But a little anxiety is a very small price to pay to see your work in print.
"Seattle Sketcher" is a 112-page limited-edition coffee table book with a selection of my Seattle Times columns. It will be available in selected Seattle area stores starting in October, but it can be pre-ordered now from most countries around the world through Pediment Books, a Seattle Times publishing partner. Here's a link: seattletimes.com/sketcherbook.
