Strange Stars Update: History Lesson

Work proceeds on Strange Stars. After some wrangling, we've gotten the layout into pretty much it's final form, so I thought it was time again to show off some pages. This is a two page spread:


There are some typos in the text to be fixed, but I I'm really happy with how the pages shaped up.

This page features the artwork of Jez Gordon and Dave Johnson, and as always, is brought to you by the graphic design skills of Lester B. Portly.

Looking great. What is the timeline for a finished product? Because you know I am going to buy this.

Trey said...

Thanks, guys! And thanks for encouraging this project at every stage.

@seaofstars - Shooting for Fall. I have been saying "early fall" but given the stage of progress (and wanting to make it the best project possible, I think being a little vaguer is best.

A space timeline that doesn't read like a Guinness Record book is always welcome. Nice example of graphic design that doesn't burden the eyes.

Thanks! I felt like with something like deep time galactic history, you need to really just hit the broadstrokes.
