I finished gluing the covers this morning.
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.

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.

I've changed my mind about what to do. The above is a cropped image of an accordian book of six A6 pages. The eco-printing turned out unsatisfactory. I've written several haiku, all to do with nature, that will go in - still to do. I'm about halfway, considering the covers still have to be made.
