It seems like a long time since I have posted something on the blog. Why is it that time is just flying? I was not sure if I would meet the deadline for the Marin County Fair this year. Before I went to Germany I mailed in the entry fee for two books. My plan was to work on the books during my vacation, which did not happen (though I brought quite a few materials along in my suitcase!) Once back in the City I got right back into my usual busy schedule which did not leave too much time for ‘book-making’. And then, within two days, I finished a small little Flag Book – the glue was still drying when I dropped it off this afternoon. The book is glued into its half clamshell box and closes with a belly band wrapped around. It is a very nice size which fits in your hand. Height 6.5″, Width 2.5″ and Depth 1″ – when pulled out the Flag Book is about 20 inch long, it has 55 flags. The print is the hand carved linoleum block print on Thai Mulberry Paper which I had printed for the Chinese Year of the Dragon. On Monday I will find out if the piece has been accepted and will be on view over the Fair from July 3rd through July 7th, 2013.
