Annie, what a marvelous project. I want to do an art book and was
thinking on all original prints with my writing. Perhaps it would be
better to do the prints and than have the book made the way you have
done it. It looks very professional. I have my wood, I have a few
sketches and some writing done. This winter in Baja I will begin the
project. Has anyone done just an art book, not published through one
of the available publishing sites? I am not sure how to print out
writings to go with woodblocks in an all original, not copied prints
book??? I was thinking on using the computer printer, acid free paper
and mounting it onto my art paper next to my prints and binding it or
even doing it accordion style. Does anyone have suggestions???
Annie, it seems yours was a long term project as, mine would be,
probably 2 years or so. Any advice would be welcomed.

My tigers for 2010 are almost finished, if I get into that studio
today they will all be done and a few will need to finish drying. I
plan on mailing them after we get back from Europe in mid October.
They are close to winging their way out to everyone on the list.
Sorry to be so tardy, it just go too hot in Baja to finish them and
than when I got back to Washington I joined the map exchange, spent
many an hour getting that one done. I promise one to each of you and
thanks to all of you who have sent one my way.
