2011 Calendar

It took me all summer to design my 2011 calendar, cut the linoleum blocks (some more than once!) and print it on my letterpress. Finally, it's done! Here are some pictures of the finished pieces with the linoleum blocks and the printing in progress. The type was done on the computer first, and then the blocks were printed. It's a limited edition of 40 and it's available in my shop, here.

The Compleat Martini Cook Book

I found this book (and yes, the name is spelled incorrectly) at the Rose Bowl Flea Market last Sunday. The pictures are fabulous, the recipes sound pretty bad (but after a few martinis, who really cares?) The book was published in 1957 and is dedicated to all of the publishers that rejected it. The recipes are simple to follow and involve things like canned soup and frozen peas.
