Artisans@the Archives, Day Two!

We are just beginning Day Two of Artisans@the Archives in Ottawa! Yesterday we had a few kinks in the day-the Christmas Parade blocked the venue's Free Parking until almost 1:00 p.m. and then there was a brief snowstorm which kept a few people away from us.

Today has dawned bright, clear, completely sunny but cold. A perfect day to get in the spirit for Christmas Shopping!! There are 90 vendors here with everything from paintings and jewelry to handmade soaps and christmas decorations.

I have many items to sell as well, including new calligraphy illuminated broadsides, letterpress bookmarks, hand-made blank journals, and of course copies of  The Abecedarium for the Makers of Artist's Books! I have three copies with me for sale. This is the letterpress artist's book edition that has 26 copies. One copy of this edition was accepted into The Sheffield International Artist's Book Prize show in England this year! Of course, I also have a lovely array of Letterpress Christmas Cards, made with hand marbled papers and printed in my studio this year.  Stop by and say hello!

My booth! (I had to take the photo with the computer-little blurry!)
