Deluxe Yamamoto Masao Update
May 9, 2011 § Leave a comment
Master carpenter Chris Leanarts is now in the process of further curing the wood, a rare Oregon raised, instrument grade cedar, for the custom handmade box that will house the Deluxe Edition of Yamamoto Masao. The rate at which the wood is cured is critical and needs to be watched carefully. Upon walking into Chris’s studio, Mark Tomlinson (book binder on this project) said the aroma of the wood was a strong as putting your nose into a jar of Vick’s Vapor Rub!
And…Pam Clark is currently at TwinRocker in Indiana working with Travis Becker on handmade papers for our next Prism books. This beautiful paper was used for the binding on the Prism book Yamamoto Masao. TwinRocker was established by Kathryn and Howard Clark in 1971 and was pivotal to the renaissance of hand papermaking in America. (Read more about TwinRocker at www.twinrocker.com.)
Stay tuned for more folks…it’s all good.
