To print the book, the Printing Company made metal plates to print 16 pages at a time onto large sheets of paper. In the case of Bonsai Inspirations, there are a total of 272 pages requiring 17 of these large sheets of paper per book. To print on both sides of each piece of paper and in 4 different colours, over 136 plates in total were needed!

The very first copy of Bonsai Inspirations

Friday 4th February; just 4 days after the book went to print and well ahead of schedule, we received the very first copy of Bonsai Inspirations from the publishers.

18 months (and hundreds of man-hours) after I wrote the first page of the book, Bonsai Inspirations is finished and at the time of writing is being packaged ready to be sent out across the world!
