Some of my presents will pop up here occasionally. For example from my sister I got some really nice papers, among them a banana paper which I decided to use with the monster book covers. But I got a whole lot more stuff, books to read, gold leaf foil to use, and best of all: a new camera – my first real one with exchangeable lenses, and with more manual control over the image.
As announced before, I want to pass on some of that birthday joy. I decided to give a copy of my Coptic headbands book to Denise (The second edition is now ready to be ordered!). To employ also a little bit of luck into the game, I decided to give out another, smaller item. I threw a virtual die and determined to give one of my jotter journals to Kiley (click here to see more, and order your own). The owl is one of my very first lino cuts, the covering paper is a thick Asian paper (the same that is also used for the end paper for the Coptic headband book, but without the leaf print). Pages inside are lined. – I hope both will like their gifts!
And now I am off to play with my new camera, finish the monster book (one of the covers is finished by now), and get those gifts into the mail. See you around!
