For the first two hours of the day I battled with TIFF files placed in parallel. At 600 dpi and a bit depth of 32, the aggregated TIFF would not convert to a JPEG within PhotoShop. The file’s settings had to be reduced to 300/24 (which is quite large/dense enough for my purposes).

Throughout the day, I maintained my routine of constructing page and plate artwork for the booklet. It was a painfully slow process. Mercifully, the artwork illustrations (the figures) were designed for the exhibition boards, last year:

There is, now, an unsettling. The earth trembles, violence erupts, powers topple, the unspeakable is spoken, what should not becomes, and a distant, dark tide rises. This is how it begins.
