I’ve spent the past three days re-reading U2: A Diary (and I’m nowhere near finished). But instead of reading a MS Word doc, I’m actually reading proofs of what the book will look like when it’s published later this year. Sweet!
I can’t keep this to myself, so here are a few sample pages (click to see a larger version of each one):
The above is the beginning of the 1981 chapter. This is (currently) pages 38 and 39 in the book. You’ll see some gibberish text below the color photo — that’s where a photo caption will go.
And this sample is the next two pages from the 1981 chapter – pages 40 and 41.
The reason I’m going through all the proofs is to try to catch any remaining typos, make sure photos are generally placed in the right places, write some photo captions, and stuff like that. Need to wrap this up soon so the book can get sent to the printer! Back to work I go…..
