Back home again…

Filed under: Morning Musings — jackie @ 8:05 am

Good morning readers.

Did you miss me?

I’m back at the home computer again after a couple days spent with the parents. My visit was short but I’ll be going back again soon to visit and├é┬ábecause my Dad is going to make me a standup desk out of an old postal clerks desk. I have a tendancy to multitask and alot of times I check my computer by bending over the desk chair instead of sitting in it so I decided it might be best to get a desk I could stand at to work without hurting my back. I’ll have a stool for sitting too. Did I mention my Dad is in his late eighties and still makes beautiful furniture? I’ll post photos of him and the desk when I go pick it up.

If you’re like me you enjoy any magazine you can get your hands on that contains good articles on bookbinding and the book arts.

A few magazines of note:

Bound & Lettered is published four times a year by John Neal Bookseller. Need something new to inspire you? Bound & Lettered provides practical information on bookbinding, calligraphy, artists’ books, and papercraft. You will find each issue filled with wonderful ideas & projects. This quarterly publication features how-to articles with step-by-step instructions and illustrations, artist galleries featuring the works of accomplished calligraphers & books artists, useful articles on tools & materials and book & exhibit reviews.

Ampersand is published four times a year by the Pacific Center for the Book Arts. Ampersand, the quarterly journal of the PCBA, has articles about all aspects of the book arts, from historical commentary to profiles of working artists to practical how-to tutorials. The informative articles are generously illustrated with photographs.

I hope everyone has a great day.
