I've had this light box for over thirty years. When I was doing a lot of commercial calligraphy, it was a frequent companion. Now it sits tucked in the corner and is taken out occasionally. I used it yesterday for combining a quote from Thoreau with a circle created in Photoshop. After creating the image, I printed it out. I taped a blank piece of paper on top. Using my favorite Pentel brush pen I wrote the quote from Thoreau around the circle created from a photograph of raindrops on leaves of grass. This was preceded by several other attempts so when I didn't like the "y" in my, I wrote another one above and made the correction in Photoshop. I scanned it into the computer and worked from there.

Making handmade books has been an important part of my life for over twenty years. Here I share simple books, often based on traditional forms from different cultures. I use recycled materials and keep the process as simple as possible—no rulers allowed here. I believe we are all creative beings. I encourage you to celebrate that creativity with books of your own.
