PRINTING A WHELAN COVER

PRINTING A WHELAN COVER

A MEMORY OF LIGHT GOES TO PRESS

Irene Gallo, Art Director at TOR books, recently visited Coral Graphics in NY to review sales proofs for the jacket art of A MEMORY OF LIGHT.

On bigger books, like AMoL, we will go through the entire printing process to create an early version of the jacket for two reasons:

1) To give our sales force a shiny cover to show off to the various bookstores we’d like to carry stacks and stacks of the book…

2) So that we can get a good look at how all the pieces fit together before we print a small forest’s worth paper.
