Guys, SAM AND HANSEN ARE SO CUTE THEY DESERVE CAPSLOCK.
That is all.
Well, on that subject. Another day spent in the Library of Congress, and this time I got to an abolitionist newspaper. As expected, it was extremely self-righteous and irritating, in the exact same measure that the Southern Dem paper was batshit insane.
And I'm pretty sure the Know Nothing Party were the Tea Party of their day. Xenophobic, Anti-immigration, Catholic hating, slavery endorsing idiots. So... yep. That's about right.
We're not on the verge of Civil War, though. So I guess we're still doing better than they were back then--which, to be frank, I did not expect.
I still might go to the historical society next Tuesday. Just because it'd be awesome, and maybe I'd find a few neat little turns of phrase. But for the most part, my work for this week is done apart from printing the covers. This is partly because I hemmed and hawed about it. If I print them myself, I can't print them to the edge--there will be a bleed. And so, I thought I'd just do the images smaller and not even try to take up the whole page--what's the point? And then I thought, what if that looks even worse?
But fuck it, I like empty space. I'm making these fucking things one at a time, here. People won't mind. Anyhow, I think I'll go pick out some card stock and do a test print tomorrow. Wondering if it's smarter to print one and do color copies on it or print them all... thinking the former. Wondering if it'll look decent.
The cover is fucking stunning, though. Even more stunning than Hansen and Sam are adorable. Which is SAYING A LOT.
