( for Gary Barwin )

Gary Barwin (who has one of the best 'favorite books' descriptions i've seen on blogger profiles), published this wonderful giftpost recently: "Spirit Punctuation" on his Serif of Nottingblog -- in response, i was prompted into action by playing with some Mecanorma dry-transfer lettering which my beautiful sister Wendy had gifted me & i was happy to finally use it & now i'm in the mindframe to attempt a series of concrete with it & see how if anything comes out.

So, thanx again Gary for that motivational push & thanx for sharing yr work via blogging, Serif of Nottingblog is a specialspot on the web. salut!

muchmany of thank you Angela!

yeah, that gold color -- i'm a
lignin freak & i love the deep warmth of old yellow'd pages, these were "saturated" digitally a bit to bring it out more -- this new movement towards archival acid-free paper is alarming & i'll take paper w/ potential for acid-damage over that fancy-pants stuff everytime!
