Welcome to 2014! This month Antony Johnston talks about his new Image series THE FUSE and UMBRAL, with the first chapter of Lalia & Morhain’s KRANTZ, a comic originally banned by the Catholic Chruch and now translated into English for the first time!
Here are the specs: Individual issues (no trades), hand sewn, Art-on-cover (aka half bind), hand stamped text on spine, no page removal, custom table-of-contents, custom end sheets, and a robust “extras” section at the back of the book built as “signatures”.
I am nearing completion on a three volume set of Hickman’s Fantastic Four/FF. I will post detailed results when completed.
I have been away for awhile. I had some health issues to address and resolve.
While away I spent a lot of time thinking about what to do next.
This is one of two blogs I write.
This blog is dedicated to designing covers, table of contents pages, end sheets etc. I have decided to continue sharing images of what I am currently working on at this URL. In addition to images I will also be posting videos hosted on you tube.
The videos will cover a variety of topics. the first couple are essentially book reports or reviews of completed projects by other people.
I’d like to start a dialog to help/assist people with their projects. No charge. I am willing to share my knowledge and resources. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and lets talk.
PS: I am working through the emails I received while on hiatus. Be patient, it is taking longer than I anticipated.
I have eliminated my dpbanks.com site that I had located at Flavors. Try as I might I was never satisfied with how Flavors worked. The promise was to have all my sites and blogs flow through the site but it never seemed to work properly. So for now dpbanks.com will point to this blog.
