Should I have received information on the next summit?? I did send an
email asking to go. I know people are busy, just don't want to be
left out. I have been to both and highly recommend them.

Yes, Marilyn, thanks for reminding me. I also haven't gotten my info yet.
Another summit is something I will clear my calendar for; I was that impressed
and influenced by the Vancouver one.

Subject: New eBook available in the 'Library'!
Posted by: Dave Bull

It's been a long time since I've been able to announce one of these, but can now tell you that I have just published another in the 'Classics of Woodblock Printmaking' series of eBooks.

This is the fourth in the series, after previous volumes by Hiroshi Yoshida, Frank Morley-Fletcher, and John Platt.

The 'new' one is a freshly edited version of the original book published in 1894 by the US National Museum, based on source material provided by Mr. T. Tokuno in Japan.

Here's a quick quote from the introduction: "The Japanese government of the day made a gift to the U.S. National Museum of a complete set of printmaking equipment, including carving and printing tools, pigments, blocks, paper samples - everything involved in the process of making prints. In addition to the materials themselves, illustrated written descriptions of many aspects of the craft were included, and this pamphlet is a detailed summary of those descriptions."

The eBook is now available as an 'instant' download from my Mokuhankan shop, at $5 - information here. Note that the full text still remains in my online library, where it can be - of course - read at no cost. The only reasons you might want to purchase this are: to have your own 'copy' always handy, to have it in a properly formatted and readable layout, and ... to help support what goes on around here!

Thanks also, to collector Mr. Dale Evans, for . . .

Subject: Trading Card Project
Posted by: Georgina

I have (so I thought, what with the divorce, new job and sorting out a new life)been way to busy to print and do art but something came over me and I put my hand up to be involved in a project where 54 artists create a 58 prints to create a pack of cards. It is called the trading card project (and details can be found on Barret Galleries Alstonville web page) So the prints are really tiny 6.4 x 8.9, the size of a card. Anyhow I went off to Scott's press (we have a great relationship, me and that press) and whipped off 65 prints in a few hours!!!! done done done, how easy was that! The moral of this story is just do it! because sometimes putting off printing takes more time than doing it!
