Type and proofs

Harry packs each galley of type into two tied and wrapped blocks of type for me. The contents of one bucket can be seen here on my stone. Along with the type is a set of galley proofs. I have already made up my paste-up for the book, using the PDFs that Harry has emailed me previously, so I know what pages to make these galleys up into. There will still be the occasional miscast so, even though the text has not been rekeyed I must read the galley proofs.
