Oops. I haven’t posted anything lately. But, never fear, because I have been busy setting type and making intaglio plates for my my new letterpress books. And making pie. (Side note on pie: I used a round casserole-type dish for this pie thinking that it was the same as a regular pie dish, but upon completion of the pie and further inspection, I realized that I had made a particularly TALL pie. Nonetheless, my dad was amped on it.) It occurred to me today that sometimes baking and cooking functions similarly to art-making; it is making something with your hands in order to say something. For example, I made this pie to say THANKS DAD and HAPPY DADS DAY.
