Apologies

I started a project with a deadline of the end of August and didn’t realise just how much time it would take. The knock on effect is that my book for this collaboration will be late. I hope to get it done by the end of September/ middle of October.  Just thought I’d  let people know.

This image is from the time consuming thing.

Nature, experimentation



Two samples of explorations into the theme of Nature. Eco-printing is involved. I cheated and added modge podge, a glue used for decoupage, to adhere actual leaves as I was dissatisfied with the first outcome. Text will be added.

Playing with ideas

I've been experimenting with different techniques for a different project. One of the techniques was making a collagraph plate using impressions in plaster. It doesn't work for the original project but I think I may have found a way into 'Nature'

Single colour
visciosity inking
offset from the roller when viscosity inking
 smaller pieces laid on the plate
 and offset

3.0 # 19 (Nature)

Ok - I said nature :-) - hope that was sort of in everyones ballpark - or did I dream it??! Its wide open to interpretation and I for one would like to see the corner of the world YOU live in.  I took this photo on 26th May 2011 from the balcony - its one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen.  I guess this was before drought struck South Africa. It reminds me of Everlasting Covenants.   Please put your participation into THIS discussion so its all in one place.

Books I have so far:

I will be discussing the joyous merits of collaboration using our last efforts on Friday at the Bookness Colloquium, including some of our other projects, time permitting.  If more books arrive before Thursday they will squeeze in too.  So Svenja and Petru, I'm hoping!!!  Somewhere I read mumblings of another collaboration? At this rate we will do one a year - but thats WAY better than nothing!!! It will be our 19th book - thats quite something by anyones standards! Just to make it difficult (or easy???) how about 3.0 # 19 (Nineteen)??

And of course mine!

Apologies from Jac

I'm sorry. When I said I was going to post out the books what I obviously meant to say was that I was going to wrap and address them and then leave them on a table and forget about going to the post office.


Books have been taken to the post office today and should be with you shortly

Pehernefer. I have started - in fact nearly finished! But Jac has been amazing in putting up his books...
