Update on Upcoming Paperback Releases by Belsebuub

We’ve been quiet again here on the blog, but that’s because we’ve been keeping busy as usual with work behind the scenes for MLP. One of the more exciting tasks has been Dara and I spending a lot of hours working on typography for the upcoming paperback releases by Belsebuub.

Working of testing fonts MLP

There’s a real art to choosing the right font, which we’ve both been exploring for the past couple of weeks. Each typeface has it’s own feeling and personality, and are appropriate in different circumstances. And it takes a lot of time to go through and test hundreds of fonts to find the one that’s just right!

Even with the right font, then there’s font size, line spacing, margins, and other considerations when formatting books. The hard work pays off though, as when you get it right, reading becomes more enjoyable, and you don’t even notice the font (they say the best design is one you don’t even see!).

We’re really keen to put the new font into action as we work to bring out the next publication, the USA Book News Best Books awards finalist Gazing into the Eternal by Belsebuub. If everything goes to plan, it should be another 2-3 weeks. There will be more books to come after that.

Again, thank you all for the support that keeps us going. We should have another update when we’re close to releasing Gazing into the Eternal.

    Hi Jenny,

    Thank you for the update. It’s quite remarkable what the MLP team did with the Path of the Spiritual Sun’s design. I’m looking forward to see the outcome of your work on Gazing Into the Eternal!

    Thank you for the update Jenny.
    I’m looking forward this book to be published and have it on my hands. It was great when I read the first printed edition.There were solid and pure messages I got from there.
    Can you say if the context has been updated from Belsebuub?

    Nice to see this little update.

    That seems like a very useful endeavour, to learn more about fonts and such, I’m sure it’ll benefit the books due to come out in the future.

    I agree some designs are so natural and well done that you don’t even notice them. Same for well designed websites where you can get to work straight away even if it’s your first visit, because it’s just so well put together.

    Those talks and the content featured in Gazing into the Eternal is really good, hope it can reach a lot of people!

    Thanks for the update Jenny. It’s always great to hear what you guys have been up to. As for not seeing any activity on the blog, it has proven to be that, “no news is good news”, and behind the scenes you are working hard to publish new material. The Path of the Spiritual Sun is a great example of the many little choices you’ve made. The book is an example of the excellent work MLP has done in publishing Mark’s work. I’m looking forward to see how the team is able to push beyond that with the upcoming books. I’m sure people will notice the extra mile you go by not noticing anything except that the pages almost read themselves 🙂

    Thank you Jenny,

    I so enjoy reading your updates and it gives great joy and pleasure to see how the MLP team work to bring these works by Belsebuub to humanity. You put so much energy and love into what you do and that is really obvious when you have the books in your hand!

    Wishing you both much strength to bring the next book to life.

    🙂

    Nice to hear you are delving into the art of book design Jenny! 🙂 I find book publishing to be a really complex area, as so many things need to be taken into account for a book to look neat and professional and so many eyes need to check it before print in ordeer to catch all the little details that could possibly go wrong. The books so far look very nice though, and I am sure that things can only improve from now on.

    One thing I would personally like to see at some point in the future (maybe with some unexpected donations helping?) is The Path of the Spiritual Sun to be printed on a fancy paper with colorful pictures and everything… That would do a true justice to that book, looking at all those beautiful sunrises and symbols in color. I understand how much work and resources that would take though, so its understandable that its not a priority right now.

    Wishing you a lot of strength and inspiration!

      Typography and book layout stuff is hard work. I delved into it only a tiny bit in various ways, and it’s amazing how much effort, thought, and work it actually requires — something that typically tends to get take for granted when picking up a book or magazine… Keep going with the awesome work, ladies — can’t wait for Gazing to come out! 🙂
