The Things You Find

Been scouting the used book shelves. The item above initially made the sense tingle, thinking we'd scored another choice item for the Hodgson-Cohen Books on Color Collection. Alas, there was no actual color included in the book. As useless as a book about letterpress or etching that includes not even one example of the technique under discussion. Also this copy was the common third printing, not the notorious (& therefore highly desirable) second.

If publishing really is financially perilous, look for opportunities to publish books about making money in other endeavors, like candle making! Get a papermaker and a letterpress printer, and you can start a Renaissance fair! But then you might end up back in publishing, so be careful.

Happy happy, merry merry to all. There are some flat rectangles under the HM tree that look promising; hope you have some as well.
