Design Decision: Chemise

Griffin has suggested that we drop the chemise for two reasons:
1. It is "Functionally unnecessary... Since it's a hardbound book, it can live safe and sound in the slipcase alone."
2. It is expensive. The chemise will cost $90 per book, according to Alanna Simenson's quote. These funds could be allocated elsewhere. For example, more multi-color printing, or simply as a financial buffer to ensure the project's success.
Per the Consensus Press rules:
Major decisions will be made by vote of the membership
So, it's up to you:
Äänestys: Should we drop the chemise from the proposal for The Tale of Sinuhe?
1. The cost of the chemise is $90 in Canadian dollars (i.e. ninety loonies). So, it's a bit less in normal dollars erm I mean USD.
2. The financial success of the edition is guaranteed with the current funding. Literally every part of the production process has been quoted (even shipment from points A to B, B to C, C to D...) and is accounted for. There are no mysteries as to what this will cost to produce. And the per book price already includes a fifteen percent "just in case" buffer.
Removing the chemise will almost certainly ensure there's some leftover funding. What we do with that should be voted on. It could be refunded, forwarded to the next edition, donated to charity – whatever.
For what it's worth, I would vote to remove the chemise even with no cost implication. I think it's totally unnecessary for the design of this book.
