Hope-in-the-Mist by Michael Swanwick :
how the hand bound copies were made

sewn onto tapes

spine prepped (mull, glued)

a glimpse inside

lining the boards

the view from the bindery ; case in preparation

an interlude to make black raspberry jam

cases made & trimmed

case edges and corners turned

ready to go

the bindery at 9:00 p.m.

the first copy, cased & bound

endpapers by the late Ann Muir are without equal

bound books under weight, on the desk, after midnight

the bindery on the following midnight, frontispieces inserted, ready to go

another glimpse of the endpapers

presentation copies on publication day
