Hey, Zemming? Would it be possible to get the source/product number for the ink/paper used on the dust jacket? I'd like to make a matching box for the book to slide into (the way a lot of old hardcovers came) to help protect it when I'm not reading it, and it'd be super-sweet if I could get matching paper to cover the box in. It's a very, very distinctive deep near-black green and I'm having a hell of a time trying to find anything that looks like a match!

Sorta of hoping for invoice soon, the new week has started, so pumped.

Spoilers



I had to stop reading after the master took hold poor murky, abound by his friends, his Idole villoniosed on air. After all he went through, that broke me. I could not read one more page, this will be my chance to finish his story.

Like, some kind of jacket for the book, maybe to keep the dust off? :twilightsheepish:


Unfortunately there's not really a standard product number or anything, the dust jackets are custom made for the book. But the material itself is just regular paper with a matte film.

If there's a local printing house nearby you, I'd bring them your copy of murky and see if they can print off a sheet or two colormatched to the cover. Or if you have a color printer at home you could trial and error until you get close. Then just have a 'poster' printed with nothing but the solid color. That'd give you enough paper for your slip case idea.

Well, as massy as this is, I want something supporting the open side and keeping it bound in a block so there's less distortion on the spine when it's standing up on the shelf. Less about dust, more about structural integrity.

All excellent ideas! Thanks! Probably take me a while to get around to, but If I'm happy enough with how it looks I might post it here.

The first batch of books were shipped out the 19th. But it seems the 'send everyone their tracking numbers' option was turned off. whoops.

So US-orders should be getting tracking numbers soon.
International orders I have to send out tracking numbers manually. So your books have shipped, but it'll take me a bit to get the int'l tracking emailed out.

I got my reserve list copy of Murky... It looks beautiful but HOLY CELESTIA I did not realize how thick this book was going to be. Looks like I've got some reading to do. Thank you!
