We’re leaving tomorrow, March 6th, for the press check of Rebecca’s upcoming “My Dakota” book in Singapore. Today we’re looking at a set of third proofs for the book (above), and will confer with David Chickey –– the book’s designer and Radius Books’ creative director –– later this afternoon to collaborate on what corrections make the most sense at this point. We may have one more round of pre-press work later this week, before we head to press early next week. If all goes according to plan, we hope to blog on press next Monday and Tuesday (March 12th and 13).––Alex Webb
