|Description||Rix states that with quarto work, it is not usual to proceed with the text until the blocks are ready as there is nothing to be saved by slips and the expense is doubled if they have to re-make. The blocks are usually inserted in the process of printing.|
In fact, they have begun printing in spite of the extra expense because they were anxious to get on, and were frustrated by the long delays and difficulty in getting answers to their enquiries. By an early post they sent Gordon her manuscript, and ask that she mark numbers on the proof of the blocks and then return it to them. This will allow them to leave the proper spaces in the text as they set it up, and money will be saved. Rix notes that they have found all the places for the blocks completed by Mr Collings.
