Since co-founding it in 2005, I have edited, written for, designed and directed production of the Guide, and directed art in all but 2010. I’ve tried both traditional and experimental production, in 2009, using 15 different paper stocks for the inside, and three cover colors, leaving the paper order to the printer. As Publisher, I’ve lead the group, organized and lead regular meetings, hired and let go of staff, and worked closely with each group member to get the book out attractive and on-time.
In the 2012 (#6) issue, I introduced a second color to the design. With the release of An Arrival Guide in late 2013, the project has been in hibernation.
