Two days of walking round a table picking up 36 loose-leaf sheets, booklets and posters, placing inside a jacket, slotting an introduction poster into the front cover and bagging the whole lot up. All in order to make up my 1000 copies of Homeward Bound. I actually lost my fingerprints through too much contact with paper! One of the printers delivered the jacket late, further heightening the pressure. The other printer (who did the rest of the work) was exemplary. Thank you Active Colour. Thank you my team of complilers (Paul, Iris, Ingrid, Tim and Mark) - you were flawless. And fast.
Time to breathe again.
