coming soon

i've been working on the booklet
promised to participants in the Second Skin classes
that will take place in lovely Mansfield, Victoria
in November this year

which contains explicit step by step instructions
on how to print on cloth and paper with leaves

string me a story on shapeshifting
will be 32 pages of ideas
jumping off-points
sketches and photographs

i'm hoping Second Skin participants will add to their copies
by writing extra notes in the pages
perhaps even tipping in a few extra ones
adding their own drawings
the odd swatch
other inspirational images
so that it becomes a highly personal working tool

this will be a strictly limited edition
100 copies only
numbered and signed

testing the water for that other publishing idea
that i floated a while ago

and Sidnee?    i owe you a dress [as well as the first copy of the above]
...those pix i shot of you in Portland last year 
have been getting a hammering
i think we need to do another photo-shoot
in New Orleans
now that would make a fabulous publication
just sayin, is all


  1. as i said over on facebook, sign me up.

  2. Me three. There's LOTS of people that appreciate your efforts and generosity......just saying.....☺

  3. yes please, can I put my name down too?!

  4. Count me in .... I would happily put such a journal to good use

  5. Yes please! And thank you!!!

  6. Yes--I would be interested. You also said in Coupeville that you might write a Bundle Book about changing simple shaped cloth--I think the Merino tube brought about that discussion. Many ways to wear that simple tube. Hmmm! Possibilities. Lovely to think about. Janet Wright

  7. that other publishing idea is still coming on? wonderful, I will keep checking, and yes, please sign me up, I love your books as objects, they are always beautiful

  8. i went over to your other unveiling from last spring...and saw no my thought is that you are still ruminating on the subscription series...and if so, call me totally in. imagining you in the drylands now......xo
