So, the book project that Guy Hunt and I have been working on has been trundling along. I feel guilty about it occasionally, until I hear stories from professors about projects that take ten years to publish. Hopefully we are not on that timeline!
Guy posted work from two more contributors at the Archaeologists | Photographers blog, including Dave Webb’s brilliant and honest black and white portraits of field archaeologists.
I also finally “typeset” the book proposal–I kept bothering my design friends to do it, but they’d always tell me to do it myself, that it wasn’t that hard. I first tried it in In Design, but just couldn’t figure out the interface to my satisfaction, so I ended up putting it together in Adobe Illustrator. I suppose I could have just gotten a word document together, but it seems like a book that is fundamentally about visual presentation should at least try to look good. I’m hoping to get it finalized and out the door by the time I go to the field this summer, wish me luck!
