Juxtaposition

The second book we are going to make in class, in addition to the concertina, is a stab bound pocket book. This is very simple to construct as you just sew the pages together. Traditionally there is one big difference between the two book types.  Read the rest of this entry »

Book stuff, an addition to the library

This post really belongs in jan/feb 2018, but December needs all the jolly things it can get. The impulse shopper came home with half a pad of paper. Its american i think, its called parchment and in a weird size. I was wondering what to do with it, and decided to make a book – I’ve wanted to try Coptic Binding for a while now. And books are special things so it’s interesting to make them. Read the rest of this entry »

Life still rather off course

So here is an update on Nigel 3.0. (Not a cat)

so about half way down you can see a pulled stitch. That’s where I got to last time with a circumference of 25 stitches. Now the circumference is about five times that length. 

I shall keep going until I finish the two balls of yarn. Then we’ll see what comes out of using such a small rate of expansion 26/25. I’ll post updates here because hopefully by next week I’ll have more of my life back (beyond being able to count to 25).

Maps II

I’ve been really busy this week, but I’m not sure how much I have to show for it. I’ve printed the first proofs of the three A2 plates I posted about last week, but mainly I’ve been diving in to origami. And that has been causing me to reconsider the J11D project. Images and things are probably going to be a bit thin on the ground until the end of term as all this work is large and requires an A1 folio to cart it about; something London’s public transport isn’t very keen on.

Cobbles III

Going back to the beginning; round things in a square. Here are twelve pages from a sketch book. How does the circle, the pebble sit in the square? Quantity, proportions and placement.

Next time more of an analysis of what might work and what doesn’t.

blotted solvent print with blank block and masks

I’m not sure if you’d call this making progress or its just eliminating wrong turnings.  Read the rest of this entry »

Cobbles I

A couple of weeks ago I was waffling on about my summer printing plans, and here we are. Over the easter Break I made a couple of plates and launched back into term with some experimentation. Some more successful than others. Read the rest of this entry »

Magic Squares?

This post will definitely make more sense when i’ve posted last week’s exciting episode.
