Nearly there?

Did I say 'Rapunzel' was ready to print?

3 more tweaks, two more dummies and the artwork is finally finished! Happily the printer likes this version and has given me sets of prints that match, whose colours I like and without any banding.

Not only that but I've almost finished another page for 'Where the dead live'. They only need the layers putting together, although burning the edges has made the whole house smell like I lit a bonfire in my workroom.

Now all I need to do is work out how to put this book together!

Earlier this month I received a great concertina book from Estelle in South Africa. I'll post pictures when she reveals all on Book Art Object


  1. oooo what a temptress you are! looking lovely!

  2. Thanks The down side though is that the whole place smells of bonfire and my fingers look like I smoke 40 a day

  3. The pages for both your books are looking really great Jac - you must be feeling pleased. I understand about the smell in your room - I was lighting matches to burn wax for the wax seals on my book and it was awful!

  4. Great work, great process. I'm sure you'll come up with a beautiful binding solution!


I really appreciate hearing from you. Thank you for taking the time.
