Well, this might be the ‘dumbest’ thing I’ve ever dumb, er, done. As part of Cuneiform Press’ Music Series, we’ve been printing and designing concert posters. This one was for a punk house show. Punk? I’ve done posters for folk, country, classical, avant-garde, and rock and roll, but punk presented a new aesthetic challenge. Typically, […]

I WANT TO GO HOME WITH A BOOK IN EACH HAND

Posted by on Nov 22, 2016 in Music Series, News, Process | No Comments

Last year I made the weirdest book I’ve ever made. Not weird-weird, but simply a massive amount of work for what amounted to just two copies, so I’m sure more people will read about this book here than ever actually see it. The book I’m referring to is Will Sheff’s (of Okkervil River) selected writings, I […]

PACKING PRINTED SHEETS

With printing complete, I began packing up Ted Greenwald’s Con Dot to ship to bookbinder-poet extraordinaire CJ Martin up in Colorado Springs from Austin, when I realized that I’ve always worked with local bookbinders. I was nervous that they would be damaged, or lost, and even considered driving them up there myself, but instead of […]
