This is what my new studio looks like right now…total and utter CHOAS.  Although I am thrilled to have a space above ground with **gasp** windows, there is A LOT of work to do before I can really use this space.  There are more spiders living out there than I can to think about, and the work tables were built for someone much taller than myself (are we’re clearly a DIY job).

This is the first studio space that will truly be mine, and I can make it into whatever I want.  Yay!

FUN DATE IDEA:

  1. Drive me to Barnes & Noble.
  2. Give me $1000 so I can buy books.
  3. Leave.

Or maybe stick around if you enjoy reading ;)

more like stick around in case I go over

This, but instead of Barnes and Noble, I’d like to go to the Curious Bookshop in East Lansing, MI. $1000 would go a LONG way there!

I’m in the midst of packing up my studio and getting ready to move next week.  While packing up a box of bricks, I can’t help by smile at the thought of the moving guy (or gal) who has to carry this box thinking “Gee, this is heavy - what the hell is in here? Bricks?”  And then they look down to see that the box is indeed labeled “BRICKS”.

A variety of marbled endpapers photographed in high-contrast black and white (1, 2, 3, 4).

So sad that these are in black and white - decorative endpapers are one of the things that tend to get lost in translation when a book is digitized. The patterns and colors used can help you determine how old the book is and what country it was bound in…with digitization, we keep the content, but lose the context.

Re: “We can’t have red on the spine that’s Harvard”.  It’s not red - it’s Harvard Crimson.  Having previously worked in the Harvard College Library, I can tell you that they take their crimson very seriously. All books sent to the commercial bindery are bound in a certain crimson bookcloth so that they all match.
