Premature Print Test

Still with a way to go before completion, I thought I'd treat myself to test print of the progress to date.

Physical Prototype
  • Used Lulu: A5 (5.83 x 8.27 in / 148 x 210 mm), Premium Color, 80# White, Linen Wrap, Matte Cover.
  • Colors are vivid! Construction is good (though smyth sewn not an option)
  • Content is about complete (70%)
  • There are typos (no quality control yet!)

Learnings
  • Feels very different looking the physical book to onscreen or individual print outs, has given me clarity on certain typographic decisions.
  • Some background greys are too light (they disappear somewhat and ruin the page structure).
  • Not sure about the super white paper, colors look great but makes ink very reflective. 
  • I didn't allow enough room for trimming, the book is very fat and more was lost than expected
  • Small light grey text doesn't print well. I knew this, but still I try!
  • Some tints lose too much saturation (will add some color tests to next proto)

  3. I want to thank Dr Emu a very powerful spell caster who help me to bring my husband back to me, few month ago i have a serious problem with my husband, to the extend that he left the house, and he started dating another woman and he stayed with the woman, i tried all i can to bring him back, but all my effort was useless until the day my friend came to my house and i told her every thing that had happened between me and my husband, then she told me of a powerful spell caster who help her when she was in the same problem I then contact Dr Emu and told him every thing and he told me not to worry my self again that my husband will come back to me after he has cast a spell on him, i thought it was a joke, after he had finish casting the spell, he told me that he had just finish casting the spell, to my greatest surprise within 48 hours, my husband really came back begging me to forgive him, if you need his help you can contact him with via email: Emutemple@gmail.com or add him up on his whatsapp +2347012841542 is willing to help any body that need his help.
