My latest silk screen accomplishment, 'Down your Street - Old Amersham'. I gave myself and Charlie (the lovely girl I silkscreen with) the mammoth task of printing these books of Old Amersham in 3 colours and to do 40 copies. Our newly awakened silk screen skills couldn't take it, and unfortunately quite a few came out rather smudgy looking. This I know is part of the fun when printing with silk screen, however, it was a bit much even for me! I think that they were successful as far as they could be, but from now on I will be sticking to 2 colour prints when using our little home studio print room.
This is the second book I've done of this format, and I love it! It's great because you print onto one flat piece of lovely paper and then construct the book afterwards. This is a fold I learnt from the wonderful Rachel Hazell of 'Hazell Designs books' when myself and my sisters did a Sewn Structures course with her in Edinburgh. You can read about that here. Be sure to keep an eye out for future books in the same/similar format of other cities and places. If you have somewhere to recommend, ket me know! And if you would like me to tell you about it when I produce new books, then please sign up for my newsletter. (You can find the link in the right hand panel on the blog).
Thank you for reading,
