Next vol 25 article mostly done

About one third of the text left to do, but it's already pre-encoded from the ODT file so it's very quick. Should finish tomorrow.

Next vol 25 article started

Fixed a bug in the previous one, and set up the next one; encoded the whole bibliography, and then did a pile of automated markup on the rest of the document, pulling the notes into place, tagging quotes and a lot of other stuff. What remains should be a fairly quick job. It's a long and complicated article.

Finished bibliography for second vol 25 article

This was a gnarly one. Lots of formatting and sequencing errors in the bibliography, so it took ages.

Cover reworked for print shop

The Espresso book machine is apparently, unexpectedly, no longer in operation, so we were redirected to the print shop. Their requirements for spine width are different, so I had to rework the .ai file and regenerate the PDF. Sent the results in to them with an order for 30 copies; proof should be ready in a few days.
