Not a hard book to produce, this was a letterpress project that was quite straightforward -- pages of text set in short lines and printed. Assembly of the parts was also fairly easy, since it was mainly a matter of cutting the boards and pushing the wing fasteners through. Making sure the saran wrap was tight and kept in place by the rubber bands.... might have been the most difficult part of the production.
