The molasses is very stiff and slow, but it is flowing – that is, I am getting closer to finishing…

I am having entirely too much fun doing these books. This is an 8×10 inch cover I just finished. It is a print on white Arches Cover from a 35mm pinhole negative. I love the way the image dissolves into nothingness as you look closer. I was not sure it would work; getting it just the right size, and not having the printing ink smear when I wetted the back of the paper. I did not even get glue all over it. Of course, I don’t have the book pages yet, but I am loving the freedom having a printer gives me in making this kind of work.
PS. The photo on my computer screen looks a bit more splotchy than the real thing.
