We finally wrapped the Hollywood Auction catalog last night. It has been an arduous process these last few weeks. It was at times painfully frustrating and more than a few times tempers flared. We only began working on this catalog in ernest three weeks ago. This has probably been the quickest we’ve ever put a catalog together. This required that the staff all put their lives on pause. We cancelled personal appointments and forgo any social life. To me, the countless hours and late nights are worthwhile when the finished product is something to be proud of. Personally, I am proud of the editorial and graphics departments. They cranked out copyedits and laid out pages at an impossible pace. At the end, we have a 400-page catalog with almost 1,200 lots. As usual, the quality of the offering is unparalleled (yes, I’m humbly biased). Gracing the cover of the catalog is Academy Award-winner Robert Skotak’s Drop Ship from Aliens. I will offer more details of what’s in the catalog in the coming days. In the meantime, I have to go see Prometheus.
