Before ‘Dinosaurs’ of the Deep was in its current hardcover form, I scored a thrill by watching the book roll off the presses at the Friesens plant in Altona, Manitoba.
I had never seen this end of the publishing operation before, and I was amazed at the complexity of the process. Then again the pros at Friesens made it all seem easy.
Each panel is checked for colour and accuracy, and then signed off by the publisher before the run continues.
The cover looks amazing, thanks to the vivid illustration by Julius Cstonyi, a world renowned paleoartist.
There’s something to see at every turn in the plant. Here’s the trimmer. It slices through a stack of pages like a knife going through butter. Watch your fingers!
What a great day this was!
