Tempting fate?

I've been working on some visuals / graphics / objects / artwork - whatever you like to call it - for the next issue of the artists' books journal The Blue Notebook.

Heres a sneak preview:

I really hope I'm not tempting fate for my new commute next week.

On show

The Russia - UK book project - Sons of the Sea (times) - that I contributed to earlier in the year in has now been compiled and the UK edition has gone on show in the Library Special Collections room at UWE's Bower Ashton campus.  Further venues to be announced, but you can see the full range of 24 images from the Russian and UK participants on the Book Arts webpage.

Loose ends

I spent most of last week on the letterpress, as it was the last chance to use the print workshops before the long summer break.  I was experimenting with some of the 'ornaments' or symbols to create text reminiscent of a digital message board.  100 bookmarks were duly printed, plum black ink on ivory 270gm card, plus a few extra bits and bobs.  Now all I have to do is cut them all to size.

I have also literally been tying in loose ends, this time for the blanket I have been crocheting as a gift.  Full photos will be posted after it has been gifted, but I can tell you that I based it on this granny stripe pattern from Attic 24 .
