New Year – 2015!

Last year, I managed to teach a few classes but spent most of the year in a migraine fog; seven months without relief. But near the end of last year, I found a bodywork treatment that has relieved the pain. I didn’t get much done – and no blogging in a year!

Now that I feel better, I’ll be posting again. 😉

While I wasn’t able to do much work last year, I did some and I’ll post up my efforts as I go along.

I have an Etsy store called BiblioForge (tricky branding, right?) and have posted a few calligraphic woodblock prints.

The e.e. cummings quote was cut a couple of years ago and this fall I printed it letterpress.

The alphabet was fun – I used a ruling pen to write out the letters, then cut them in wood. Printing on a Vandercook letterpress is a nice experience and oil based ink is completely different than water based ink.

These two prints are available at BiblioForge on Etsy. The new year promises to be productive in terms of making and researching books!
