A little package of bookmarks winged its way to me last week, courtesy of UWE. The project doesn't go live till September (when, I like to think, there will be a strumming of harps and a striking of drums. And such) but here are some of my favourites.
The grey one might seem at first sight to be an unexpected entry as a favourite, but careful study will show that a poem - a beautifully sensual poem - is blind letterpress printed on it. These are all printerly examples. Here are some more good bookmarks, less or not exactly printerly.
I'm not quite sure what I'll do with them - I'm not disciplined enough to use them in strict rotation, and too completist to take a few out for regular use, leaving the rest behind. I think I'll make them their own box and then dip into it from time to time for something to suit whatever I'm reading.
I make prints and book arts, though nowhere near as often as I'd like - no good reason, just an inability to get on with things. I occasionally go on about landscape (with which I am mildly obsessed) and various of its elements, and I like to pass comment on exhibitions I visit.
