Then the page plan was redesigned again to join Jo's ideas and my ideas together, then work begins on each double-page spread. Designing is very complicated. It begins with my blog posts. Jo then works on the text, and chooses which pictures go with what page.
Most of them dad has taken (like my articulated fox Vulpy below), but some are from photo libraries (like the human skeleton below). Jo then sends her ideas to me, and I make changes or say fine. Then it goes to the designer, then back to me, then to Paolo from the Horniman museum (who is the book's consultant and expert fact checker) and then to the publisher for approval. It's just like writing a blog post, except a zillion times more complicated.
So here's a TINY sneak peak of the book so far, but lots of little changes are happening on the pages even as you read this !
