Wow! We are four months into the year! Where is time going? Any way, a post is long overdue and I am sorry for the lapse in writing. I have been busy catching up on some fun reading (26 books since January 1st).
However on to the show. I am sure most of you are aware that I have a deep love of books: reading them, buying them, touching them, making them, restoring them… So I am sure it doesn’t come as a surprise that I would choose to write about them.
I came across this video HERE and loved it. It inspired me to try to write, print, and bind my own book: something which I hope to do over the span of this year. The catch is, I want to do it in miniature. With that in mind I recently purchased this:
It is 8pt. Which means it is SUPER TINY! You don’t really get a good feeling for how small a font is until you have it sitting in your hand.
So now that I have the typeface, I am working on the story. I am thinking children’s book or fairy tale as I have many friends who are currently pregnant or have small children so it would be fun to make something personal that I coul gift to them. How awesome would it be to give that as a gift? Or maybe a star book type thing… I don’t know. I am still brainstorming! Leave some ideas in the comments if you’d like.
Thankfully I have Whitney to help me! She has lovingly agreed to help me in my endeavors 🙂 Check out her website, she is a pretty amazing print maker! And I am looking into taking some credit courses toward bookbinding.
I guess for today that is all I have for you. Hopefully I will get back into the habit of posting on a regular schedule! Until next time!
