Order status "Echoes Of Norwood"
« on: January 27, 2013, 01:04:59 PM »
As many of you probably know I have written a book  documenting the history of the Norwood Ohio GM Assembly Plant.   Pre-order sales have vastly exceeded my expectations so –We did the math and calculated that we actually ran out of the first batch of the special paper that will be used for the initial print run with this past Friday’s listing of orders. 

All books ordered after 1-25 will ship as part of the second paper order which should only delay shipment by a few of days at the most.

As of right now all orders should ship either at the start of the week of February 4th or if part of the second paper batch- the end of that week.     

Ironically John Z’s order  will be the first book printed on the second batch of paper.   Thanks for the order John! :)

The web address needs a correction. It has a comma after the www instead of a dot and the link doesn't work until you fix it. I just happened to pick up on it after it failed the first time.
Great Preview and will order.

 What's the scoop about the special paper you mention?

www.norwoodassemblyplant.com   (no comma this time)  Thanks!

On the paper- you have to be picky with the paper you use along with the weight and the fiber direction.

Paper and tight micro fiber makes a big difference when you are looking at the fine detail in photographs and how it prints out. 

It all looks good at first glance but when you put a magnifier on it to examine the fine detail you can really tell.

Based on that explanation how will the second batch with the different paper render images?

Thanks,

Mike,

Should be exactly the same.  The issue is that the paper I am getting is special order from a vendor with a lead time and I simply did not get enough as I underestimated the pre-order volume on the book.

Thanks!    Got your order.  Additional paper has arrived and the next print run is being scheduled now. 

Books ordered in the first print run are on schedule to ship by the 4th.

I just selected the video producers that will be doing the official plant history documentary. Yes there will be an upcoming film documentary on the Norwood Plant and its history making operations.

In the tradition of film documentary work pioneered by the likes of Ken Burns- the finished film work will likely appear on either Speed, or the Discovery family of networks when complete.

Filming and interviews will begin at the reunion. I am thinking that if you need a display example for how a car was built then the display cars will provide ample backdrop for the stories of what it was like to build them.

I just got your book and find it fascinating reading. Always wondered what it was like to work in that type of plant situation and other then the union part it really isn't any different than any other manufacturing business. Some of the places I worked in manufacturing all seem to have that same politics going on, time studies and so on. Somehow I thought it would be a piece of cake to work in a car plant. Heck, in 1972 I almost went to work in the Doraville GM plant in Atlanta, but I went into the Air Force instead.
