It’s here! It’s here! Tales From the City of Destiny is finally available for purchase! After what seems like months of writing, proofing, and review it actually exists as a really, real book. Does this feeling ever get old? I don’t think so. Last year, this project was just an idea, barely an idea even, and here it is as a physical object that anyone can hold.
As a graphic designer I marvel at this phenomenon every time something I’ve dreamed up comes off the press. From invitations to signs everything looks slightly different in real life than when I began the creation process. Some things look better, some things are disappointing and some things are neither bad or good – just different. And while every single time it’s still cool that something I dreamed up is now a real physical object, the dissonance between idea and reality no longer surprises me.
Except when it comes to my books. Somehow the process of turning a word document that barely contains my invisible friends into an actual book is… amazing. And I hope all of you will purchase your own copy and enjoy reading about my invisible friends as much as I have enjoyed writing about them.
