Towel in for the day...

I've done nothing but the Atlantis book today, and I'll say what probably everyone except me was already fully aware of: it's hard to design a whole book! I keep finding more little details that need to be taken care of, usually on every page (like numbering...) and I keep finding more little tweaks and adjustments that will make things look SO much nicer, but take SO much time.

Learning a lot as I go along, that's for sure. Probably a good thing I had no idea how much time it was going to take when I started or I would have just laughed and laughed when they suggested I lead this project...

Now, however, everything hurts like crazy, and I'm going to put away my laptop, clean up the six dozen Atlantis pages scattered all over, and go take a little nap with some nice icepacks before Jake comes home.

I'm not done yet, but it gets closer and closer and closer... it'll be a fine looking book, if I do say so.
