When we printed the original edition of Volume I, we ran off a lot of extra full colour copies on environmentally friendlier 100# matte paper. Back then, I wanted to print all of the books that way, but the colour wasn’t quite as sparkly as I wanted it, so for most of the first run, I went with gloss paper. However, the matte pages were fantastic to write on, non-glare, and the paper was lovely soft, and thick. I bound some of the matte prints into books, and those are the copies that we sell on Amazon.com.
During this past year, I thought about binding more matte books with our remaining copies, but decided on making teaching copies instead. We separated 500 of the book prints into chapters, stapled them, and they are now available to order.
Each chapter is exactly as it appears in the book, and chapters range between 25 pages (Zigs & Zags) to 50 pages (Glorious Combos & Cones). That’s a huge number of colour copies – unaffordable except for a press run. So we did it for you, for only $3 per chapter.
But please order them now, because when they are gone, they are gone.
Minimum order 12 sets/$36.
Just a note- the updates to Volume I do not affect the technical information- these teaching copies will match both editions of the first book.
