Collaboration Nation

Here's a sneak peak at the date book I am working on with Blackbird Letterpress. About a quarter of the pages are printed, all with handset type on her Vandercook. Mine will be coptic bound with a as-yet-to-be-determined cover. However, my datebook ran out of time for me this week so I took a few test sheets from the first printing, sewed an impromptu cover this morning with my sewing machine, a rice bag and a little chip board and voila! Hopefully, the rest of the date books should be done before I run out of pages in this one. (You can see my now-retired book in the background.)
