Because there is so much interest in white line in the last year or so, including my own, I would like to have someone demo that at the Baren Summit in San Antonio.
I would liketo hear form others, as well, about demos.
Wat are you interested is presenting? Seeing?

I guess this answers my question from two weeks ago about the summit, it IS
still on.

Who's planning on going?

Le, do you have a number of people who are going?

I'm planning on being there and have registered. Like Maria, I'd love to hear
some chatter of who is going and what people are interested in.

White line sounds great. I'd also love to see someone demo wood engraving with
positioning on knives, especially with a sand bag (at least I think that's what
it's called).

WHOOSH! There went another week! I'm getting wind-burn from the speed of January... Probably my biggest accomplishment of the week was finishing the carving on eighteen (count 'em) little linocuts bound for use as wayside map icons. They're stacked on the table and ready for printing tomorrow. I'm looking forward to it... just imagine how satisfying it will be to have a drying rack

Subject: Pressing on after the flood.
Posted by: Oldfield Press

Well, we can't wade through what has happened forever so to check the presses were happy and the wooden bed we use on the press wasn't too warped by what had happened I did a new cut.
We have also been using our type and Stu photography skills for another project and will update y'all on that soon enough but for now....

The print room has been dried and swept. Cleaned and dusted.

There isn't enough room in the print room for the proofing press so for now this is done on the rehearsal room floor.
