Michael Landon Remembrance Project
I made a commitment to project
participants to send one bound volume containing the messages and other features
of the remembrance project posted on this website to Michael's family and I am
pleased to report that I have fulfilled that commitment. The bound volume, or as
we refer to it the ML Remembrance Book, was shipped to Michael's daughter on
January 28, 2008 and was delivered by FedEx on Wednesday, January 30th. In the
Spring of 2009, I went beyond my initial promise and sent additional books to
Cindy Landon so that she and all of Michael's children would each have a book. A
note expressing thanks and appreciation has been received.
And now for some particulars...Messages
were received from people residing in a total of 32 U.S. states and 21 foreign
countries (and there may have been more but over 40 people sent in
messages without indicating a location). The ML Remembrance Book is 8 1/2" x 11" and was bound using
the same method (perfect binding) typically used to bind paperback novels. The
book consists of a full color wraparound cover and 136 b&w interior pages, which
includes several picture collages.
Here are small pictures of the book's
wraparound cover* and two of the collages (without, of course, the website address on
*This picture of the wraparound cover
is before being trimmed in the binding process and therefore includes additional
space on all sides (the 'bleed area'). Since many difficulties were encountered
in creating this cover in a form acceptable to submit to the printer writing on
the spine of the book was intentionally omitted. As novices to the whole book
binding process, writing on a book spine required a level of precision that was
beyond our capabilities.
