Thursday morning musings…

Filed under: General — jackie @ 8:44 am

Good morning readers.

The weather her in Va. Beach has been hot and humid. We did get some much needed rain the other night but of course when the day heated up the moisture from the rain made the air really humid. Ah…the south in the summer. I’ll definately be prepared if I ever visit a tropical jungle. TGFAC!

I’ve been busy the past couple of days with a rush project for a client. I’m setting up text, printing and binding a sample book that will evenyually be published in an edition of 100-200. It’s very cool. Definately stretching my design muscles a bit. :o I’ll share more about it later.

A site of note this morning. Alice Simpson has made some wonderfully creative artists books. You can see them on her site.

Has anyone used a Gocco for printing illustrations in their books? I recently aquired three used ones and am planning on using them in my art camp classes this summer. 

Apparently the producers of the Print Gocco machines had decided to no longer supply the machines to the US and since they have become really popular here there has been a big to do about getting them back on the market. It looks like they will be carried in the US but with limited availability. For more information see the Save Gocco site.

For Gocco enthusiasts, check out the site of Shu-Ju Wang . She’s publishes a little magazine called Pudding. From the site: “Pudding is the Print Gocco proof magazine. Published 4 times a year, roughly every 3 months, Pudding tries a variety of methods, tools, and paper surfaces when printing with the Print Gocco.” 

Have a great day.

  1. Hi Jackie,
    It’s always amazing how word gets ’round. Kind of like the old game of Gossip.

    I’ve been busy creating a Presentation (The AppleWorks version of Power Point) and using all the graphic design skills I left behind with the onset of the computer in the 1980s. I truly believed like the wheel and automobile, the computer would go away!

    Have just completed a unique book and sculpture about a drag queen, Miss Roj, and pleased that they’re on route to Louisville for The Kentucky Museum exhibition VISIONS FROM VOICES.

    Thanks for looking at my website, posting note on your blog and bringing new friends to my dance floor.
