|Cover Photo for Monograph|
Harry Nunn and his family
A long time coming, but the monograph on my Nunn family line is done. The three parts were printed on Friday; Front Matter – 10 pages, Manuscript – 86 pages, and Index – 3 pages. I brought the seventeen copies home and checked through each one making sure pages were printed, table of contents and index pages were correct.
Today I printed six ivory parchment paper pages for each of the seventeen copies that delineated the sections. I call them “pause” pages, since the reader can pause and know another section is about to start. I also feel the different texture of the parchment adds a nice touch.
The monographs are now in a box ready to go back to Postnet to be soft cover bound. While that is being done I will ready the padded envelopes with printed labels so I can send the monographs along to family members.
And one last thing. I still need to write a cover letter to go with the monographs, and that seems to be the hardest part. Been mulling over what to say. How do you condense seventeen years of work into a few sentences? I’ll get it done.
