Back in the bindery again after three weeks off bushwalking in northern New South Wales and south east Queensland. Time on the track is great for reflection and I've returned with ideas for new projects; some thoughts on a way forward for started but stalled projects; and an offer of some teaching at a small contemplative retreat in the Gold Coast hinterland. Spent this morning tidying up in preparation for an anticipated burst of activity, including cleaning up some bench weights that I picked up from an old wares shop on the way to the start of my first walk.
Delighted to find two BAO books waiting for me on my return - A Subversive Stitch and Snow Falling in Daylight - both by Queensland calligraphic and book artist Fiona Dempster. Some wonderful photographs of these (and other examples of Fiona's work) can be found here.
