We are now in the middle of writing, designing, and figuring out a way to print The Pizza Book. A big step is selecting the print, what paper stock we select, and how we package the shipment. Here are a few shots from the samples I have been receiving.
Getting samples in hand lets me, as a designer, take a look at the paper stock quality, how the ink is interacting with the fibers, and understand the tactile nature of the material. Can't design on the monitor forever.
