Mr Coconut book has gone to print…

So the last couple of weeks of the summer have been spent tweaking the last few bits and pieces of the book. I’m sure when anyone makes a book they get the finished article back and find loads of tiny bits wrong with it, that no one else would ever notice… but the problem is that we notice, and can’t bear the idea of finding lots of tiny mistakes.

Here’s us rebuilding one of the last-page scenes for the fourth time…

But we’ve finally happy with it… and today we sent it off to print! What we would have liked to show is a photo of us is packing all the artwork into a box and sending it off to be photographed. But instead we have a photo of us pressing a button to email the PDF files.

It takes nine weeks to print, so we should have finished books back at the end of November. So in the meantime we’ll be making the book plates, postcards, stitched illustrations, pants and everything else we need to make for the rewards for our Kickstarter backers.

Next update should be to let you know the date that it’s officially published – we’re hoping to have a launch in Brighton, so for any of you that live nearby can come and pick up your copy in person…
