Letterpress Bookarts Bootcamp

I'm a little late on posting:  in Late July I was able to take a week-long letterpress and book arts workshop called "Image/Text/Print/Book" at the Womens Studio Workshop in Rosendale New York. Rarely do I get the chance to have focused time on *making* things and it was nice. I rented a room in a kooky house next door  so it was nice to be so close to the studio.

There was only one VAndercook press so press time was limited. I thought if i typeset the small panels of an "instant Book" format I would tackling something reasonable but I was wrong. My instructor had to help me with the lockup and said it was "one of the most complex she'd seen". Who knew?
