OH! I forgot to mention that I went to part one of my Letterpress class at the VABC today, and we are working to set two poems worth of type that will be auctioned off at poetry readings by the authors during the VA festival of the book.
Since we're making them, I get free copies!
I really do love letterpressing.
Also, coming to the VA festival of the book is Etgar Keret, who is a fantastic Israeli writer, and whose work has had much impact on some films i really loved. His story "Kneller's Happy Campers" was the inspiration for "Wristcutters" and he directed "Jellyfish". I am just really glad I finally looked at the list of people who were coming!
