At last! The first several hand bound books have been taken to the post office. The remainder will be taken on Monday.
The dedication rite was also held this morning (here you can see a partial stack just before the candles were lit; there really are a lot of books).
Getting these in the mail felt wonderfully conclusive. This project is very nearly over – at least, the physical aspect of it. These particular books will go out to do their work in the world and that’s exciting to think about, though they’re also beginning to leave my sphere of awareness just like any completed spell does.
Of course, the process of bringing the entire Worshiping Loki project into being is only partially completed. Next I’ll be working with a print designer to prepare the standard issue copy; some of the design work will also have an impact on the electronic copy, which will be released at the same time, I expect. I’ll keep you updated as these upcoming stages develop.
