Another daunting pile

Stan Lane at Gloucester Typesetting has cast the 14pt Dante for me. It took two trips to get it here, and the first task was to divide up the galleys into the various sections, shown here labelled up. There is not a lot of continuous text in this book, being by and large a set of extracts, so rather than make up the pages I have labelled each section of type, 'Alm C4' is page 4 of the comments about Villa Almerico. Using the galley proofs I can make up a dummy of the book in the sections as they will be bound, and this tells me which sections appear on the same sheet of paper for printing.
