While in New York...

My last few hours in the city, I visited the Center for Book Arts in Manhattan. Aside from being a wonderful space for book artists in the city, there were also two interesting show in the gallery. I posted two photos from Catya Plate's series Clothespin Freaks Portrait Gallery, detailed embroideries on pillows that were more intricate than most drawings. It was worth the walk up the two flights of the stairs. And I got a cute but dorky Vandercook t-shirt. I also posted a photo of my desk at… Continue

Thank Goodness There's Lalapress! In a time of frustration, Mable at Lalapress rented her Vandercook to me for a few hours and I was able to get my project(s) done in no time! *phew* I love the feeling of satisfaction.
