Next edition?

I know we've only just got near the end of #19 but are we looking for ideas for #20.

I was going to propose Silver (as in anniversaries). Then I looked it up and found the 20th  was actually China.

So I've two proposals (though I'm more than happy to go with anybody else's ideas instead), 'China' or 'Silver and Gold' (it's the time of year for a bit of bling).

Finally finished

I finished gluing the covers this morning.
If you want to see more and read the poem that the title came from click here
As I photographed them 3 more books came through the door. I haven't opened them yet (saving that for a quiet moment to enjoy them in) but Stephanie, Petru and Martine they've all arrived safely. Thank you.

Halfway there

The insides are finished. Now all I need is to work out what to do for the covers.

Change of Direction


A couple of weeks ago I woke up and couldn’t get out of bed. Moving was agony. Too much time spent bending over a worktable and not enough changing position and doing other things.

Well I can now move better but I still don’t bend or stretch easily. In terms of studio work this means I can stand at the drawing table and scribble, if I don’t over reach, and I can use the computer.

I was going to make coloured offset prints from a large collagraph plate for #19 (Nature) but the roller at HBP I need for the this size of work is rather large so I think it will be too heavy and too much of a stretch at the moment. 

So I’m having a rethink.I’m considering snails.
 Medieval ones of course.
