The Prescribed Burn Book Binding and Final Copies!

On Wednesday, I visited my printer – Starnet Media in Mahwah, NJ – and had a chance to see my books being bound. The pages and covers had already been printed, but I was able to witness one of the most interesting steps: what happens right before I could hold a finished copy, still warm from the perfect binding machine.

In the video above, you can watch me stand before a stack of raw pages and covers and walk through the process, from gluing to trimming. That day, I was able to take home a few copies to begin to sending to reviewers and Kickstarter backers, but the process to bind 1,000 books can take about 4-6 hours, depending on the skill and pace of the machine operator. I’ll hopefully have all the books sometime this week!
