It's here! My hardcover bound Thesis - and it's SO PRETTY!!!

After lots of fuss and carry on last Wednesday, I finally sent my Thesis off to the printers on Thursday. I ordered 3 hardcover copies, for the university library, the department of Humanities and myself, and two deluxe soft cover copies for my supervisors.

Today Dave traveled all the way down to Caulfield South and picked them u for me! They're so beautiful! Each of the bigger boys immediately claimed a hard cover version for themselves - and were mightily disappointed when they found out they weren't in line for any of them. They wanted to know if I was going to sell these volumes and Dave told them, "Not these, the one's mum will be selling will be paperbacks." - gotto love his optimism!

I'm so happy with the colour, too - and the purple lettering turned out really well (I wasn't able to conceive of it when they suggested it to me because the sample on the site wasn't metallic).

Anyway... Squeeeeeee!

Thanks guys! I'm hoping that colour on the cover will make them stand out on the shelf (yeah, I know it'll only be in a uni library, but still)...
