Making Stuff

Monday, April 25, 2005

4_25_a4_25_b

I’m taking a boxmaking class at the Armory Center for the Arts in Pasadena. The course complements the letterpress printing I’ve been doing the last couple of months. My instructor teaches both letterpress and boxmaking courses. It’s really fun and I feel like a little kid again making crafts at camp—gluing and sticking, cutting and pasting, spilling my glue and making a mess. Yup, that’s me alright. Some things don’t change.

The red box is not finished, it will be completed with a lid covered in black book cloth. The round container is a recycled roll of packing tape—pretty clever, huh (not my idea). The other box is, I think, self explanatory.

Well, while surfing through Illustration Friday and Illustrated Blogs, first I found sketches of the Doo Dah parade, and here's your mention of letterpress and box-making classes right near Dallas Public Library where I began my professional life. (Librarian for a while)
My ex and I had a Kelsey clamshell handpress for a while and joined a group of pied typesetters... I was going to ask if you knew Vance Gerry... but when I googled his name, it turns out he died last month. (http://www.variety.com/article/VR1117919106?categoryid=25&cs=1) If the library or Armory have any of his letterpress works or ephemera, they're worth looking at. He was very helpful to us while learning to lock down the type frams and cut lino prints. Thanks for the memory jogger.
