finally... new rollers

Whew! After an entire summer of trying to get new rollers, they have finally arrived at my doorstep. These are shiny new composition rollers for my Kelsey 5x8, purchased from Tarheel Roller & Brayer Co., and it was a real treat to work with them after 5 months of getting the run-around from another roller company. The Tarheel guys were nice, friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and when you order something, they make it and send it to you! Amazing!
A confession... I'm also a real sucker for little wooden boxes.

best fortune ever

I don't usually collect the little paper slips from Chinese fortune cookies, but this one is just too good to toss.

Here we go.

new studio

I'm finally feeling like I'm settling in to my new studio here in Asheville, NC. I still have some unpacking and organizing to do, but it's nice to already be printing in the new space. H&CP has a new website, too - check it out here. I've just noticed a few days ago that there are some layout problems, so bear with me while I get those fixed. I'm currently working on finishing The Lost Land, prints for the Old Maid exchange, and the month of March for the 2010 LOL Calendar.

Coming up soon - BookOpolis at Asheville BookWOrks. I'll be there, serving up refreshments and giving a letterpress printing demo. There will be a display of lots of amazing new work by printers and book artists, a talk by a local printer, and demos in every area. The event will be on Friday, Sept. 25th 6-9pm and Saturday, Sept. 26th noon - 6pm at ABW, 428 1/2 Haywood Road in West Asheville.
