Nose to the Grindstone

Yesterday, I sent the completed maps off to NYC.   The maps included one of the whole story area with labels on it (the publisher will change those to the font they prefer), one clean of all labels and extraneous marks that included the whole story area, and two "halves" of the whole, for putting on facing pages.   This way, they could cut the "whole" area map in a different place if they wished but I'd provided two perfect halves.  Each map came in two formats, high-res JPG and TIF.   The images were sized to print properly at the size of the map in the original book.  (It is so cool to be able to do this...resize to a print size in the correct pixel density.)
