A long list

In the spirit of making this project as transparent as possible, I thought I'd show you the spreadsheet I'm looking at right now. With 20 days to go until I'll start the design process, there's still a lot to do. There are some more columns in my actual file, containing some personal information and notes. There are also some more lines, containing people who've apparently vanished from the face of the Earth (i.e. I can't find their profiles anymore). That's a shame. Anyway, this is where I'm at. I'm hoping for a lot more pictures and signed usage agreements within the next 20 days. I'm confident in some cases, hopeful in others and rather pessimistic in most. We'll see.

abgeschlossen: All is well. These people's images are gonna be in the book. :)

zugesagt: These people assured me they'd send me something in time.

vielleicht: These people have shown interest at some point but I'm not too optimistic.
