Thank you (with kisses) to Diane and all the artists represented in this
exchange. I opened my prints today, oo-ing and ah-ing over each one. What a
perfect size! What stunning images! Each one so perfect, it seemed.

And, there seem to be quite a few names I didn't recognize, so I assume
there is a healthy wave of new and participating members. Welcome aboard!

In case you missed it. It's going to be HUGE!!!

Last announcement before the New Year, I promise.

A welcome letter for all already signed up will be forthcoming in the next
week or so.

Read all about it:

EVERYONE INVITED! The City of the World shall be built in 2011!!!

Sign up is open now until end of January 2011. Deadline for returning a very
small carved block is December 2011.

Information page:

As the page says, monumental puzzle projects are a collaborative effort
among printmakers world-wide to compose an awesome print with little effort
on the part of each printmaker.

Basically, each printmaker receives a smallish block of wood which fits
neatly into the overall puzzle design. Each printmaker carves their block,
returns to the coordinator and receives in turn a huge print containing the
creations of printmakers from all over the world.

I am extending the invite to other groups so if you have your own group of
printmakers, everyone is welcomed.

Please send me questions/comments directly at 1000woodcuts AT gmail DOT com

PS For those of you who have never done one of these before, here are the
pages from the previous Monumental Puzzle Projects:

The Baren Puzzle #1

The Great Baren Cairn #2

Maria, Instigator of the MCPP

Once more, the information page outlines requirements, sign up form, and all
the details.

Yay!  The cards came!  And they look pretty good.  8-]

They're good sturdy card stock too.  We're pleased.  We went with Overnight Prints.  Only took a week (there abouts).

Anyone who wants to get on my xmas card list, just send me your mailing address!
