Drew Burk — Going into reprints and rethinks and moving along now.

02/26/2011

We're not using the vellum for the bellybands on the chapbooks anymore. So the first 4 chapbooks, which were designed each with a single plate for the cover are now being retrofitted with hand-cut blocks. The block for Drew's book we just kinda freehanded, with interesting results... we did 10 like this, to fill outstanding orders, and now we're sawing the block into three pieces so we can play with placement, getting it more right or less right as our moods dictate. For Jake's cover we'll be removing more material, going the route of Schomburg's background block.
