Postscript, the URL!

Hey there!  I'm so glad you found your way here.  This is a fun day for me -- since opening our brick and mortar shop one year ago today, I have been wanting to create an online presence for Postscript as well, and I'm so happy that this day has come! Postscript's website will offer for retail a selection of the inventory we carry here at the shop.  From greeting cards to home office goods to books to art prints, the shop will be a source for all kinds of treasures for paper lovers.  I'll also be posting workshop and event...

Taking a Stab

Although I've had multiple bookbinding classes and workshops by this stage of the game, I had never yet formally learned the structure of the Japanese Stab Binding.  But when Linda Gentry, an Omaha photographer, asked if I would be interested in doing a wedding album for her, it was the first structure that came to mind.  I knew that this particular photographer loved exposed sewings, and I had long wanted to try out the stab binding.  It was not without its challenges (and I would love any feedback from others who have done this!), but I loved working on this book and...

Back in the Saddle

 Yeehaw!  New year, clean slate, blank page -- and high time to revive this neglected little blog o' mine.  I somewhat unintentionally stepped away for a while last year while I was getting my new business up and running, but that's finally in swing, and I can hopefully get back to writing here more regularly.  So hi!  Welcome back! It's been a wild year, I have to say.  It began with a stint teaching an Intro to Bookbinding and Intro to Letterpress Printing class at the University of Nebraska Omaha while the regular book arts professor, Bonnie O'Connell, took a leave of absence....

Just Like Heaven

Business Letterpress

Just Like Heaven

Being a mom of little people, I read a lot of picture books. And I often find them ever as applicable to adult experience as to anything kids go through.  For instance, in a picture book by Patrick McDonnell that I adore, Mooch the cat falls asleep under his favorite tree and wakes to a world so covered in thick fog, he assumes he is somewhere else entirely -- and decides that he's in heaven. Walking through this misty dreamland, he is enchanted and charmed by so many small delights... dew on his feet, sweet music in the trees, laughter from...

Feather in My Cap

Calligraphy Thesis

Feather in My Cap

Why, lookie there. That is the latest issue of the one and only Letter Arts Review, featuring -- eek! -- an essay about my thesis project and some grandiose ideas, too, about poetry's place in our lives. I'm a lucky lady, and Christopher Calderhead is a dream to work with.  And now that I have written essays about the poems I printed and then printed the essays and then wrote an essay about the experience of printing poems and essays, I think this thesis project might officially be a proverbial dead horse.  Good thing all kinds of new stuff is just around the corner...
