Set in Stone book update
We’re on the home stretch. The first layout/design draft (of Set in Stone, Trail’s Rock Walls) should be arriving any day now.
The sample pages sent to us look beautiful.
Then, we make necessary changes — revisions, possible restructuring, photo editing, etc.
At the completion of this stage, the second layout is prepared.
Any more changes? Professional proof editing comes next.
Once we’re satisfied that “there are no more changes,” we send the book to the printer. We will then receive a draft copy from Friesens to scrutinize.
After any necessary changes, the actual printing of the book begins.
We’re looking at March, 2008 to be in receipt of the books, if all goes as planned.
A community book launch will be planned.
We wished it could have been here for Christmas.
It is not too late for people to make a deposit on the book if they would to reserve a copy for themselves or as a gift for others for Christmas.
We will have gift certificates available. Interested persons can call 250-364-2488, and/or visit our website at www3.telus.net/therockwallproject.
The final cost will be determined before it goes to the printer.
The book will be published and printed as a Limited Edition, so we encourage you to reserve your copy.
Your deposit will help pay for the printing of the book.
We gratefully acknowledge the BC Museums Association, Teck Cominco Metals Ltd., the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary Community Initiatives Program, the Columbia Basin Trust, the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance, and the Trail and District Arts Council, for their financial assistance in helping bring the book to fruition.
A special thank you to Sarah Benson at the Trail Historical Society and to Kristi Loughlin and Trail Community Futures for their continued assistance.
The society wishes to thank the citizens of Trail and surrounding communities, their relatives and friends afar, for their interest, confidence, trust, and patience.
