More photos of Hannah and Alissa and Paul’s book, now that it is in Hannah’s hands (and many thanks to Katey for mailing it!).

I didn’t have time to properly photograph it, which I regret.

But it is out in the world now. I’m so pleased! I hope Alissa and Paul love it, most of all.

I’m working on a collaborative commission from+with Hannah Ensor. I’m making a book, and using this as an excuse to make something beautiful. With watercolor flowers. Suck it, (conceptual) art school! I’m not embarrassed, even a little bit.

That was a little bit rude. I’m really just having a lovely time. I love love. (This is a gift for two people getting married.)

xxoo!

As a Book Art Collective member in collaboration with the UA Poetry Center, I made a broadside of a poem by MFA student Hannah Ensor. There will be a poetry reading on Thursday at 7pm at the Poetry Center. Come! You’ll see me and Hannah and a whole bunch of letterpress broadsides.

Originally I had planned on incorporating more imagery (possibly via linocut), but as I set the type it made more sense to keep it super clean with full attention on the text. It really is a wonderful text, and it is about defying expectation and not knowing, so I think it would have been missing the point to clutter it up with figurative imagery.

I find a lot of joy in setting type.

Hope you all are well. xxoo
