This summer you can see my hand bound Bestiaries in the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s, French Cloisters. These hardbound books are made in the typical drum leaf style with fabric covers and leather spines. Behind the binding are two magnets and a 6’in jewelers wire. These additions create a mount and anchor for the LED flashlights. As the pages guide you through the Cloister, the flashlights reveal the different stone carvings done by monks centuries ago.

They are up all summer with Art Splash! Please go check them out!

Upcoming South Philadelphia Printmaking & Photography Facility Space.
 
Here is a little Progress Report through images.

For those of you who know us or of us, the guys (Sam-Tommy-Evan) have been working really hard. Since my last post, we have made some major changes. We have acquired new equipment like a Plate maker and also a large scale HP Printer. Operating essential have been installed or updated while also making structural changes to the building. 

There is still a lot for us to do before we reach our goal. But when we do, the Philadelphia community will have yet another unique resource for artists. 

Tempera will in fact washout of your nice work clothes, so no one will ever know how weird you really are! Right?!
