  • Book repair 3

    I've had this history of the US, published and printed in the 1890s, on my shelves for over 50 years now. I spent the last week or so repairing it. If the creeks don't rise, the house doesn't burn and it's handled with tender loving care, it's probably…


  • Book repair 1

    I've had this history of the US, published and printed in the 1890s, on my shelves for over 50 years now. It's been through a lot of moves and even a flood. The spline was damaged, some pages were loose and the cover was 3/4s off.

    OK, this is not really an Alaskan highway, it's just another long section of my driveway. :-)

    I mentioned, a few days ago, that I laid an some acrylic on Bristol vellum paper, planing to use them as grounds for ink sketches. Well, here is one result of that experiment that I did at last night's life drawing session.
