waste not want not printmaking

after the 'i made it' faire today i came home and started work on finishing a collaborative book project i am doing with an artist book friend in chicago.

we each chose a favorite text and gave it to the other to make an edition of 2 books out of, one for each of us and then we will trade. (i shant show the book i am making here until she receives her copy, but stay tuned)

i used too much ink to get the color i wanted for some printing i am doing in conjunction with it so i ran downstairs to my flat files, pulled out a sheet of paper and printed the image on it many times to make something new. great way to use excess ink and also to add something to some of the paper i have in my backstock. 

this paper will probably wind up as covers for some blank journals i am making.
