eruptions





so, depending on the mood of a certain icelandic volcano, i may or may not be able to fly to sweden for the swedish SPX festival this weekend... but it's looking like it's going to be possible to make it out there, all my fingers are crossed. i have been using part of my current residency at spudnik press to silkscreen and hand-bind a set of new little stories, eleven of which i'll bring with me to the festival. the book is titled don't drink from the sea. i am far from being an expert bookbinder, but hopefully by the end of my time binding this edition of 45 books i will be at least a little better, or at least less covered in glue and newsprint bits and band-aids than i am now. anyway, back to crossing my fingers some more.

  10. Hello Lilli, I'm a huge fan and a novice bookbinder. I've falling for these patterned endpapers you used. Where are they from?
