APOTHEOSIS: Last Lap in the Human Race by +Dr. Lewis E. Graham​​

Lew graciously gave me the privilege of proofreading his autobiography. Though I am a slow reader, I was more than happy to help. By the time the text was sent to Bookhub, I had read APOTHEOSIS from cover two cover twice. I then read Mary Helen Hensley's chapter and the final chapter; both of which were added after my initial proofreading.

As memory serves, the first 2016 publication date for the book was supposed to be January 29. I had finished the proofreading just in time and anxiously awaited seeing the final product. After not receiving news for over a week, I asked Lew how things were going. I was shocked to hear that his former cover artist for APOTHEOSIS had bailed on him. I told him that I am reasonably skilled at Photoshop and offered to do the cover for him. Lew genuinely appreciated my offer and accepted it.

Very soon afterward, Lew sent me the specifications, verbiage, images and fonts for the task. I immediately got busy with the background. He had given me three sunset images to choose from. I chose the one that seemed to best fit the color he described for the background. I then combed the image for a deep orange-red color. I decisively went with the first color that I used the dropper tool to pick. I then chose a couple of blending options for the sunset image and background color and emailed them to Lew for approval. He chose the one that allowed the background color to be more prominent. I thought that was a great choice and went with it.

So, I then focused on the layout. Things progressed fairly quickly. The biggest snag for actually completing the cover design was the original cracked font for the title. Though he had successfully sent the other two, there was a problem with the cracked font. So, Lew gave me a link to a font website. I was unable to find the exact font, but found a similar one that he seemed to like. We both took a deep breath thinking that the design work was complete. Alas, the printing specs seemed to be a little off. Lew got busy coaxing the information out of the eastern European printing people who had limited comprehension of English. After a few late nights, we finally got the specifications to their liking. I submitted the final tweak which involved moving the Bookhub logo a bit to the right to Lew on February 25. Thankfully, we made it just under the wire. Otherwise, Lew would have missed the window. Needless to say, I'm happy that didn't happen!

Being that Lew gives all proceeds to charity, I declined any sort of payment for the labor. I only asked to be reimbursed for the $15 that the cracked font costs for commercial use. Lew, nevertheless, snuck in an extra $35 via PayPal and called it beer money. :^D

My jaw dropped when I received my hardcopy on March 9! I knew the dimensions of the book being that I did the cover, but I said, "Wow! That is huge!" when I took the book out of the box. I was elated that the printed cover looked so good! Being both an artist and a perfectionist, there are a few things I'd like to tweak. However, I had those in mind at the time I submitted the final version on February 25. Very minor stuff in the grand scheme of things, but I like my work to be perfect!

Hmmm. A nearly 15-inch giant's finger is said to have been found in Egypt decades ago.... Your comments?
In an interview with BILD.de, Spörri stated: “It was an oblong package, smelled musty,” Spörri said when he told his story to the public in 2012. “I was totally flabbergasted when I saw the dark brown giant finger. I was allowed to take it in hand and also to take pictures. A bill was put next to it to get a size comparison. The bent finger was split open and covered with dried mold.”
