SKP 2013 Done!

My little book for the Sketchbook Project is finally done.

I successfully added a spine yesterday (don't you just love the zebra duct tape?!) and bound the two signatures in place with an X pattern binding.

I finished not a moment too soon - according to the project rules, the books need to be postmarked by tomorrow, January 15th.  I'll take it to the post office on my way to work.  I could have mailed it today but I was hoping that the replacement label they are supposed to be sending me would arrive today but it didn't.  So I took my sister's advice, printed out the photo of the label I had taken when the book first arrived and glued it on the back. Hopefully that will be enough for them to be able to identify it when it arrives at the Brooklyn headquarters and they can replace the label there.

So tomorrow I will be sending my little book out into the world, first to Brooklyn and from there, on to Austin, Atlanta, (back to) Toronto, Chicago, Portland, San Francisco and L.A. from March to September before returning to its permanent home in Brooklyn. I have a hankering to visit all those places - wouldn't it be fun to plan trips to coincide with when the SKP will be in town? Hmm, might have to give that some thought!
