Makin' Books


FINALLY, after months of preparation, little accordion books containing

fourteen blocks of Savannah streetscape drawings are being

fabricated by my two-hand factory this weekend.

This is Savannah Vol. I

endured numerous printing exercises and

materials & process experimentation.

The book is a collection of drawings to-date,

marking about 3 years of work.











I made six books this weekend!

Btw, we, my wife and I, fell in love with this book. We bought it on our honey moon in savannah. We can't wait for a volume two.
I don't know if you are currently working on it, but when and if you do, is there a way for us to know. Even though, my wife now visits your blog almost everyday, do you have a mailing list?

I'm so happy to hear that the book is in good hands! I will be debuting Vol. 2 this fall, working on it now. If you'd like a notice when it is available, just send a note at kirsten@turnofthecenturies.com
I'll reply via email when it's available.
And - THANKS!!
