>> LARGER IMAGE AT LEGACY OF DEFEAT
Well, due to just being busy with various projects, I am about 90% done with the book. I have a few more pages to sort out, do a simple print out, and check to make sure the flow seems correct. My plans are to get this over to the printer asap, however one thing is needed. Who wants to edit my text and double check the my wording on a few paragraphs in the book. Would love your help. I’ll gladly pay you for your time.
The attached image is the cover (thus far) will have some changes to it probably, but i wanted something simple. I was thinking of a old book feel, but maybe going a little mahogany with it and keeping it straight forward might be the trick.
*Just so you know. Legacy of Defeat is a side project of Hydro74. I’m going to be using that as a way to sell a few books I would like to develop, as well as colab print pieces i do with a few designers. The first Legacy of Defeat book will be a perfect bound full color book featuring some apparel designers in the industry and will soon be looking for submissions. The concept is simple. Legacy of Defeat implies that we all work in a faceless industry and most of us hide behind the name of the company we work for, or are hidden, thus we never get any due credit for pieces that we do that revolutionize the systems that are defining the companies we are involved with. The project is to bring forth these people, show who they are, what they do and give them the just deserved respect that is entitled to them. It’s something i’ve been passionate about for quite sometime now, so once the main title is produced, it can become a series.
