I promised to keep you posted on the progress of this hardcover
edition from Graphitti...

Today, Sergio brought me the bookplates to sign.  There are two
bookplate pages in the edition and they look terrific.  If the whole
book winds up with this kind of printing, it's going to be our
best-looking GROO project ever.

One bookplate is signed only by Sergio.  The other is signed by me and
initialized by Sergio.  Today (so far), I've signed 400 of the second
plate and Sergio initialed all 1200.  I hope to do another 200 tonight
and the rest tomorrow or the next day.

Bob Chapman at Graphitti says the book should be out some time in
February.  That looks like a safe bet but I'd guess LATE February.
The binding on this kind of thing can take a little while.

That is all for now.
