This photo is from a review of color proofs at the Atheneum offices yesterday, a nearly last look at Locomotive before the presses roll. I’m happy to say that the book will be printed on a great uncoated stock, a paper with a look and feel that’s really in sympathy with the period and sensibility of the book. There will be an ebook edition, too, but book-as-object is one of the goals here, and that’s a nice thing to be able to write these days. My sincere thanks go to everyone at Atheneum for all the thoughtfulness and work — and it’s a lot of both — that’s going into the book. Coming in September!
