Its been frustrating to see time go to waste due to little things. The print room is currently understaffed due to illness, and I don't have the technical skills to make the kind of book I want on my own the first time. This pushes back the making stage of the books back further. I don't want to waste the time in between however, so I will be using it to prepare everything for the second book. I will be able to continue book making while I am away over Easter, which is good for me as I don't require the technical resources on site and can be flexible and mobile.
I've started gathering materials for my book making projects, mainly cover paper. I'd like to design my own covers for certain books, or incorporate text on the cover either by printing, letter press or screen printing on top the the designs.
