People In The Neighborhood

Dame Darcy stopped by yesterday to give me a copy of her new book, Gasoline.

I've read it in a draft form. It's an interesting piece -what is really remarkable is the production.

Merrell has done an outstanding job with reproduction. There are a maybe a dozen or more full color plates which and black and white illustration on every page. Many pieces look like ink originals. The cloth binding has a run of metallic gold. It's really a stunning print job.

This year I've decided to photograph all of the special guests that come into the studio. Here's the first edition.
Lisa Hammer (below) came by to meet up with Dame Darcy before heading off to some gothical olde tyme Victorian thingamajig.
