Looking Back--Two Years with Bateau

These are covers I designed for letterpress for the literary magazine Bateau over the past two years. Some of these were not used, but I like to give several options for each issue. If you go to my website, and click on the Letterpress section, you can see a few of these as finished print pieces. The couple who runs Bateau are great to work with and they have a strong commitment to both quality and environmentalism in their production, using recycled FSC certified papers, soy inks and running their offices on green energy. I look forward to another year with Bateau.

Happy New Year.

Who Said Print Was Dead?

"This season there are really only two acceptable vintage gifts: wine and out-of-print books."

New Space, Same Building

This is a picture of my new studio space which is located just down the hall from my old space. This one, however, is bigger and fits all of my equipment. The owners of the building (Orange Innovation Center) are so sweet and got me two indoor plants for my new space. I'm going to try not to kill them--the plants, that is. I will update on projects I am working on soon. Until then, please note my new address: Shelter Bookworks, 131 West Main Street #3C, Orange, MA 01364.
