Friday was another multi-package day from the Post, along with the the work I got back from the framers. The lot included 3 pieces from the always delightful Sami Foust which I am so very pleased to hang in our bedroom. You can find prints for your wall on her Etsy page.

The back-issues of Hand Papermaking Magazine came, and I am excited to delve into each one for the specific articles (mainly about Southeast Asia papermakers) that I was looking for as well as the plentiful other tidbits.

I also ordered a brass bedplate for my Poco no.0 proof press and bearers to keep my inking as even as possible. Thanks to the suggestion on Preston Briggs' blog, I ordered 6 lengths of brass bar stock to sit on top of 4 pica furniture (laying on its side) which will keep my brayer evenly hitting the blocks & the polymer plate that I will be printing in the coming weeks!

Here is a before shot of my press bed:

And an after shot with my new brass bed plate. Look at her shine!

I also received the photo polymer plate I had ordered for a collaborative artist's book I am working on with 28 other wonderful Twin Cities area women artists, called "Lunation: 28 Days of Darkness to Light".  The block on the press in the shot above is the 3rd layer from this print. More on the progress of those prints soon!
