New Book for the New Year!

Anne, Shapco pressman John and printer's representative Howard look over the interior black and white pages of Fujiyama Trays & Oshibori Towels, Recalling a time when passenger flight was an adventure and the Boeing Stratocruiser ruled the skies, on Tuesday, December 23, 2008.  John is running these pages 16-up on a huge press.

Joan Lee, editor and book designer, "Fish," Shapco pressman, and Anne look over a proof of the cover as it is being  run.  

It was exciting to watch "my baby" being born in this pristine eat-off-the-floor, climate-controlled print shop filled with huge, gazillion-dollar presses and smiling, welcoming employees.  Next will be cutting and folding and then the book will be sent to a bindery for the finishing touches. 

Bottom line:  Fujiyama Trays will be shipped next week!  Stay tuned for details on how to obtain your copy.

May January 1, 2009 bring the dawning of a peaceful and harmonious year and growing appreciation for the fond memories many of us share of the bygone magical days of twentieth-century passenger flight.
