A couple of days ago I held The Art of Explanation, my first book, in my hands for the first time. What a feeling to finally see and feel it in its final form.
Overall I'm quite pleased with the design and packaging of the final product. I wanted it to feel consumable, like something you could read on a cross-country flight. I wanted it to look inviting and interesting. I wanted it to be Common Crafty.
See what you think...
Here's the never-seen-before back cover.
The all-important spine:
A first look at a couple of interior pages. This one is part of the introduction of the Explanation Scale, which I'll talk more about soon. It's a simple way to plan and talk about explanation problems:
Common Craft cut-outs are used throughout the book, but it's not a "visual thinking" book.
It's kind of hard to believe that it's actually done and about to be in the wild. YAY! I'm so excited (and a little anxious) to see what people think.
The official release is October 23rd, but it will likely be on Amazon before then. But you can pre-order now.
