What is happening today? What is happening tomorrow? Things are busy right now and I am only just on top of what is happening day to day. Here is a list of my goings on for the last week.
MONDAY TO THURSDAY Time to print a book.
Print print print.
Print white ink on white paper for added joy.
Go home and make a mockup.
FRIDAY Hello Arts University Bournemouth! Lets do some lino carving. Here, let me do a little demonstration for you.
Ok, now you do it.
Finished? Ok, let’s print.
SATURDAY Today is a day for the Japanese four-hole binding at the London Centre for Book Arts. Hey, you! Sew a book.
OK good that looks nice. Now let’s put some books in a pile and take a photo.
SUNDAY Let’s do clamshell boxes today.
Let’s all put red pastedowns in so we match.
TOMORROW-THURSDAY I can see into the future and there is printing in it. Look, I’ve just dampened some paper so I am ready to go.
Plus made a giant lino block.
THE REST OF THE TIME In the few hours when I am not printing, teaching or on a train towards some more teaching, I have taken to making tool boxes. It’s how I relax now.
do you want one? They are for sale.
More on the new book soon. Brain turn off now. Will go out to dinner. Order food. Maybe wine.
