Week 15: Apr 22 - 28
Emailed the printer about prints being wrong, had a phone call to coordinate picking them up on the correct paper
Went to Kinkos to print a backup and spent $280 on printing 2 copies but one less thing to panic about
Picked up prints on the correct paper (only have 1 copy on the right paper though)
Ikea run to get inspired/buy some cute table decor
Consulted with expert, Cole, on which local plants are used symbolically for grief that I can use to decorate my table and would reflect my research
Rosemary and ivy would be best for leaving in a windowless space like the studio my stuff will be in
Spent most of the week binding my books!
Made ~5 books
Realized that I can make a hardcover layflat book by not attaching the spine to the binding or cover and basically making the cover fold around the book
Final book has a super soft linen bound cover with an acetate dust jacket
I listened to 29.5 hours of audiobooks while doing this (not counting podcasts and tv shows I listened to)
Moved tables on friday to prep for the show
Business cards came!
Set up on Sunday and got all of my stuff in!
This week was nuts but now I’m finished!!
