I've got further forward with this book for the Collaborative Book Artists swop.
Now I need to work out how to print it.

Here's wishing everyone a peaceful, safe, happy, and creative New Year

Trying Instagram

I've blogged less than I'd have liked this past few months so I thought I'd try Instagram to see if it's less faff for quick posts. So far I'm not convinced but I'll try for a bit longer.
Here's the photo of the second set of mockups working through ideas for a book swop. The theme is architecture. (The first ideas I had worked fine in my head but not in reality) Good job it's not due until the end of January!

Merry Christmas

My brother sent me some family photos that he had scanned from slides including this festive one from sometime in the 60’s. (I don’t think Father Christmas sent stabilisers so I’m using the aforesaid brother instead) 

I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a peaceful and safe New Year

Book Art and Print Fair

Panto went well and I finished editioning in time for the Manchester Book Art and Print Fair (which is why there haven’t been many posts recently). 

I was going to be sharing a stall with Marilyn but when we arrived there were a couple of drop outs and I got my own stall. Good job I took the Gentleman Jim Puppets, they filled up some space.

It was very cold at Hot Bed Studio and the weather outside wasn’t great but there were a fair number of people through and I sold enough to cover the cost of the stall plus a bit. Not bad for a first try!
I think I’ll give it a go at the Liverpool Book Fair in Summer
