The Sunday Paper #459
May 7, 2023
It’s been lovely to be back in Portland, seeing old friends and familiar places. My message today is brief – our daughter’s graduation is today.
Here’s your Sunday Paper:
Uppercase Magazine has been producing encyclopedias of inspiration about various crafts for the past 10 years. These are beautiful books to inspire, inform and delight, and the next volume, Rag & Pulp, comes out this summer, and it is all about paper! I’m pleased to be one of the 45-50 profiled artists. Pre-order a copy at the link.
The 18th Annual Art of the Book is now on view at Seager Gray Gallery in Mill Valley, CA: May 2 – May 31; reception for the artists: Sunday, May 21 from 4:00 – 6:00; poetry reading with Charles and Sandra Hobson: Sunday, May 28 from 4 to 6 pm.
I always enjoy reading the All Things Paper blog, and this post features some really interesting things. Did you know: there are 1mm wide quilling strips (so skinny!); Canson Mi-Teintes Ultra Premium paper works well for quilling; and this glue brush applicator has two tips for putting glue on the right spot.
British Algae, by Anna Atkins, is thought to be the first book to be illustrated using photographic images. The English botanist (1799-1871) produced her collection using the cyanotype technique, which she became aware of through her father’s friendship with its inventor, John Herschel.
- The Movable Book Society will meet in Cleveland this fall. Join the fun and meet prominent paper engineers from around the globe.
