Looks great, Justin. I agree with Seth - the first one is cool, but the I and some of the N is lost.

Awesome man!

Ok, the first list of authors and their sections are listed in our wiki:

http://wiki.nuigroup.com/Multitouch_handbook

Still some authors didn’t answer, but I belive they are buried in tasks and other jobs smile Those who want to contribute to the book, and cannot see his name, please do not hesitate to propose a chapter, a todo list or a small addition (all welcome) and let us know.

This is our preliminary timeline:

April 5: Draft sections and manuscripts
April 7: Feedbacks sent to authors
April 15: Final chapters

All drafts and final chapters should be sent to “gorkem” and “rbedi100”.

Thanks for all your efforts. Let’s keep the ball rolling!

EDIT: Now we have a Google Groups mailing list “nui-multi-touch-book@googlegroups.com” where all contribution-related discussions for the first version take place

Hey justin,
looks great! I like the first two best. Is this going to be printing in b/w or color? That needs to be decided.

Looks great Justin. Let’s make sure we get permission for all the images. First one is mine, so I give permission hah. Second is fairlane’s and looks like he’s ok with it lol. Who’s the third image from?

I like first and second the most. I’m curious what the statement “authored by the nui group community” would look like under the title. Not sure if anyone else would like that though too hehe.

Yeah like Seth said I’m cool with the pic wink

And I like the idea of having “authored by the nui group community” under the title grin

By the way, you are working with 300 dpi resolution, right?

About the side spine cover - can that be done before the book is submitted to the publisher? From what I’ve read on sites like lulu, you upload the book and it immediately tells you the ezactnsize of the spine, after which you can design it. Does that make sense?

gorkem had asked me to put some pictures on the cover. So i used Seth’s, Fairlane and jimiherzt’s. We just need to ask him smile
As far as the printing I asked rebi100 if we are printing in b/w and if I’m correct he had told me b/w for the copy and the cover art is color.
I can do the back and spine if you want. I think we should have done it altogether at first, but it shouldn’t be hard to drop in.
Yes 300dpi letter size. Just tell me if we need to go to A4 or whatever.
I have this file set up to print. I have my trim and bleed already smile Thats why the stuff is a bit pushed to the middle.
Also let me know if we have any more copy on the front cover like: “companion website w/ code samples”

I agree w/ rebi100 let’s wait for the spine. I can design one have it ready to re size, but it will not be final untill we have a size. Also i can do slides if need be.

Hey justin,
Ok so bit of a problem - the paper size is 9” x 6”. I’m so sorry if I forgot to tell you - can it be adapted for this size?

I was thinking the cover should be in color (for the pics), its just a matter of checking with the printer to make sure they can do color cover/ b+w insides for a reasonable price. Shouldn’t be a problem though.

thanks,
rbedi100
