silver blue

February 8, 2012 § 2 Comments

yesterday was one of those days where it all just not only fit together but flowed from one project to the next, play you know informing work informing play

I walked in with the idea of silver blue on black for the front cover of our first cooperative co/iteration, (for lack of a better word it not really being a volume or an anthology or a magazine, or it being all of that and more; yours truly, editor) assuming the finished product is up to the task, and if not there will be two or three possibilities to choose from once we see the aggregate in its  aggregation.

inside title page:  title (in lower case in a sweet 18 or 24 pt caslon)
Spring 2012
judi goldberg, ed. (likely in deepdene, a really elegant sculptured font.)

back cover will simply say
letterpress artists of Iota Press CoOp

I thought to simply set a list of names , but then I wondered if each artist should set his own name, or maybe we ought to do a collage, a montage, a poster if you will for the back page of our names…

anyway the blue came out just as I’d seen it (yeha!!!), so did the cover for that matter, though as elegant as the blue on black is, I was equally taken with a brown paperbag like cover—it all just depends

AND THEN, I used the luscious bluesilver ink for a ‘single piece of paper’ book. set it, laid it out (no rulers, just used the dummy as a template, made bays for the text, pulled out the sheet of paper, slid the text blocks into their slots, and presto! an 8 page book. now just the cutting and folding. yet another yeha!!!

after the person for whom the book is designed gets it (a valentines day giftette) I’ll post photos.

it was a blue breeze.
