This one is again type-related. Before I cleaned my freshly-printed type, I did a bit of hand-pressing into this scrap of paper, and then did a quick self portrait. I didn't actually look at myself, just scribbled and rubbed and scribbled, so it's an idealistic SP, more about how my head is constantly overflowing with ideas than a faithful reproduction.
Also, I have a confession. I have a book out.
Well, it's not MY book, but I clothed it, and I've been meaning to blog about it since its release, but I don't seem to have the time to devote to a decent post. I will, because I'd like to help promote it. It's The Lost Dog by Michelle de Kretser, and I designed the cover and text layout. Pav outed me the other day at Sarsaparilla, which was a delightful thing, gave me a smile all day, and gave me a mental kick up the pants for not blogging about it.
All I can say at the moment (because I have a press to clean and a son to pick up) is GO AND BUY THE BOOK. It's a very, very good read, and if she doesn't get nominated for an award at the very least I will have no respect for the Aus Lit community.
