an open source architectural beadwork project from Kate McKinnon and a worldwide team of innovators
We’re so close to press time now we can almost hear the UPS truck pulling up in the driveway. Tomorrow an exciting thing happens- we put over 180 of the approximately 240 pages of Contemporary Geometric Beadwork up on the Specials For Pre-Orders page, for the early enjoyment of our pre-order customers.
The first files to load will go up on Saturday morning, US time, and will be beautiful clean PDF files of the book spreads. They look stunning on the IPad, or other tablets. We’ll take comments on those files for a few days, perhaps make changes or additions, and then, by the end of the week (perhaps sooner) we will have page number coordination with the press, and we will fill in the page references and upload those pages as an App, readable just like any eBook.
The 60 extra pages that we are holding back from our special digital pre-release are our full Basics section, which will bring even absolute beginners along easily and enjoyably, our Cones and Geometric Chains section, a bit of Gallery, the covers, and the Introduction for Backwards Readers. CGB is HUGE- our pre-release of 184 pages is larger by far than most of the beady books on the market. Wait until you see the whole thing, thunking into your mailbox, spiral bound, full of surprises.
Yes, surprises. Still, after all of this showing and sharing, we have surprises for you.
