I learned how to set types this week so didn't do any printing. We run a proof for the bird blocks though, so I can see if I need to work on them more or not.

Working on two new blocks now, my fingers are sore but I'm really happy.

Just got a new zine about Japanese flower arrangement!

(My niece is taking flower arrangement classes in Taiwan. I am very jealous of her. She is only 12 years old. She is a lucky girl.)

oly,
the zine is a very tiny handmade book,.it's only 3"x4". i got it from a japanese vegan cafe across street of where i work now.

i only see one copy there,.i can ask the owner,.
also owner told me that this is made by one of her artist friend. i'm not sure if he/she is in LA or japan.


if i can get one copy,. i can send it to you.

it's 5 dollars,...
