All interior layouts were designed by Eric Freeman and Elisabeth Robson.
The book’s look and feel was based and extended from the original design by Kathy Sierra and Bert Bates The book was produced using Adobe InDesign CS5 and Adobe Photoshop CS. The book was typeset using Uncle Stinky, Mister Frisky (you think we’re kidding), Ann Satellite, Baskerville, Comic Sans (can you believe it?), Myriad Pro, Skippy Sharp, Savoye LET, Jokerman LET, Courier New, and Woodrow typefaces.
Interior design and production all happened on two Mac Pros and two MacBook Airs.
Writing locations included: Bainbridge Island, Washington; Portland, Oregon; Seaside, Florida; Lexington, Kentucky. Long days of writing were powered by zero caffeine and Brew Dr. Kombucha, and the sounds of Foster the People, B-52s, Duran Duran, David Bowie, William Shatner, Elvis Presley, Pink Floyd, Genesis, Simple Minds, Ratt, Skid Row, Men without Hats, Men at Work, Berlin, Steve Roach, Tom Waits, Beyman Brothers, and a heck of a lot more 80s music than you’d care to know about.
