So here is a picture of Kaia from the Tangent Press in Washington, actually using a tradional letter press on the "To Stand to Sea" covers I designed here in Alaska for my friend Susana's book (in Switzerland). Working on this with all the time-zone differences was challenging but fun.
- The photo brings back memories, as yours truly actually got her BFA in printmaking! I was big into collographs and Intaglio...back in the day, before non-toxic printmaking studios, we used nitric acid baths and lots of hard core solvents and wiped oil based inks off zinc plates with our bare hands! Yes, I know I'm a walking vessle of toxins at this point in my life.
Have I ever mentioned that one of my long-term goals is to get into good enough shape to be a candidate for plasticization when I die?
In other news, I didn't listen to the radio auction this afternoon. For one thing, I didn't have any $ to bid on anything, and like I said before, I didn't want to be listening if the item didn't get any bids...which is what I think must have happened. I say this because I haven't heard anything from either the radio station or an individual saying that the item was purchased. So...glad I missed that. But like Greg said, if I look on the positive side of things, this means more time for working on my own projects (I won't lie to you though, it stings a bit)...
