Omgomogomg it came and its perfect!!

Oh god oh god oh god. My thesis books. THEY CAME TODAY. They are so perfect. Couldn't have asked for anything more REAL!!

Because I'm still kinda new here, here's a little back story - I spent this ENTIRE year writing and designing an entire book for my senior thesis for college. Most schools/majors only have to write one large paper or a report and turn it in. Because we're graphic design students, my professor told us we had to write a BOOK and then DESIGN it from start to finish. If this doesn't get complete, we don't graduate.

After designing the book, we're required to get 5 copies of it printed. We can print them anywhere, but my whole class went and got theirs printed at my professor's print place. All they did was get the pages printed on sub-standard paper and then binded it themselves using a machine we have in the class. The binding reminds me of those little plastic spines you used for book reports back in middle school. BORING. I wanted something NICE. I spent an entire year on this book, it was going to "wow" the crowd at our thesis show.

So I went with an online printing company called Blurb.com, who do hard covered books - exactly what I wanted. Long story short, the books came today and they are PERFECT. Cover is amazing, bounding is perfect, colors are spot on, trimming was almost perfect, etc. IN LOVE.

All my hard work is finally paying off and I can hold it in my hands. Expensive, but worth it.

I love the dedication... the last part is very very true. It looks great. That's something you'll have in your home when you're old and grey and tell your grand kids about, huh? Much better then a high school report binder.
