Linkity’s seen snow falling twice in the past eight days, but maybe it’s finally spring…

Reading Update
Half Magic (Tales of Magic #1) by Edward Eager. Over the weekend, I read a lovely feature in Rain Taxi on Edward Eager’s Magic series, which inspired me to start rereading them in ebook from my local library system. I’m finding ebook to be an excellent format for these, because it means I’ll actually look up definitions – and Eager wasn’t afraid of flexing his vocabulary.
Knight’s Castle (Tales of Magic #2) by Edward Eager. This one jumps ahead 30 years from the previous book – it’s good, but definitely not my favorite of the series.

Art Journaling Monday!

Welcome back to Art Journaling Monday! 🙂 Not much this week because I’ve been working on some things that are taking a bit longer. Plus I took a class a Japanese papermaking this past weekend.

Reading Update
The Art and Craft of Handmade Books by Shereen LaPlantz. This book was originally published in 2001 and it’s amazing to me how far book arts have progressed since then, based on LaPlantz’s descriptions of how things were at the time. Her “recessed skewer” binding is really interesting and I’ll definitely be trying that technique – it involves a hole punch, bamboo skewers, and ribbon.
Stamp It!: DIY Printing with Handmade Stamps by Jenny Doh. Exactly what it says on the tin! 🙂
Hand-Printing Studio: 15 Projects to Color Your Life a Visual Guide to Printing on Almost Anything by Betty Olmsted. Ok hands-on look at stamping (block printing), screenprinting, and transfer printing. I did like the watercolor effects of her transfer printing, which I hadn’t seen before.
His Father’s Eyes (Justis Fearsson #2) by David B Coe. Solid addition to this series about private investigator and weremyste (wizard with moon cycle problems) Justin Fearsson.
Shadow’s Blade (Justis Fearsson #3) by David B. Coe. Another good addition to this series… Except now I have concerns, because Justis has leveled up way too much by the end, which often means things are going to be pretty ho-hum going forward. Here’s hoping that isn’t the case for this series.
