Copy C of Smoke Pourin’ Out of a Boxcar Door is leaving home tomorrow to start his new life in a distinguished private collection here in the Bay Area. We have no doubt though, that he will make many new friends where he is going and continue to stand tall.
I felt like I earned my keep today over at John DeMerritt Bookbinding, cutting these 558 boards in just around 5 hours. One of those Helter Skelter days. “I got blisters on me fingers!” (not really).
Super Classy is off to the Codex Book Fair. Come visit us at the Craneway Pavilion in Richmond CA Sunday Through Wednesday. Woot Woot! Updates from Codex coming here in the next few days.
I had some last minute foil stamping to do this morning for Meghann Riepenhoff’s “Eluvium” boxes. Pretty stressful stuff. Even the stamper gets a little hot under the collar. Black Iris shows every little bit of shmutz. Each little flarney looks iridescent.
Super Classy’s new project with photographer Meghann Riepenhoff is in production. These boxes will house an edition of 12 books (with three A.P.s) from Meghann’s body of work Eluvium. A look at the finished product will be appearing here soon.
There is a nice little piece on Manifest Joshua that just came up over at True North Inc. We are also happy to announce that copies of Joshua have found their way into several private collections here in California. Come visit us next month at the Codex Book Fair, and see for yourself how Manifest Joshua can help your team win for a mere $500.
