I am going to bind these beauties up just for fun. Then on to the serious work of making ten small but perfectly formed outrageous books. The “florilegium” lettering is sorted and in need of photocopying. The “baby” book’s leather has arrived and the book needs endpapers painting. 

There appears to be Scandinavian crime fiction on the radio this afternoon so that’s a great excuse to play at the printing and I have made a massive amount of chili for dinner and also for tomorrow’s breakfast.    Major win all round.

Getting back to work.

Mostly what I’ve been up to is spending my ill gotten gains on materials, equipment, books and tools, I’ve been leisurely about it, took loads of advice form merchants, almost scientific about getting bang for buck. 

I am keen to make a collections of bound note books that would be sold in a specific shop and at a price that will sell. In reality I would have been better specialising in making for Freemasons and fox hunters. Nice and tight defined market, who have money and like quality. I became distracted by working with artists because they are a bit of a laugh and they have arts council money. 

Seriously : memorial books for freemason lodges, it doesn’t get any better.
