Autumn activities

An excuse to show this beautiful acer that I snapped at the national arboretum at Westonbirt as much as anything else.

The main thing on the agenda for November is the Small Publishers Fair in London this coming weekend.  I have been assembling advent calendars from my letterpress prints so there will be an unashamed 'seasonal' section on our table.  Hope to see some of you there!

Small beginnings

I received this through the post recently, a card from New York which bore the stamp 'Missent to Jamaica'.

I rather like the idea that the card has been doing a bit of travelling of its own before arriving, and its given me some ideas for a rubber stamp project I would like to try.  More to follow when I have done some experimenting.

All the fun of the fair

Well, things have been so busy these past 2 weeks I am aware I haven't reported back on the Manchester Artists' Book Fair.  So until I get time to fill in the gaps here are a few pictures:

Unpacking and setting up

Table display, complete with brown cover for a 70's vibe 

There was a letterpress demo on an Adana press which was great to see! (obviously 'Adana Press' will now be added to my Christmas list)
