inky fingered printing adventures

August 7, 2011 § 3 Comments

Yesterday, my flat became a small CD-packaging factory for Fallen Leaf’s EP Gathering. The whole thing is a carefully handmade confection; recorded over a series of nocturnal sessions in an empty church (beautiful acoustics, handsome stained glass and plenty of peace and quiet – there are photos and live videos here), then packed into hand-printed and stitched sleeves. You can buy the tunes here  or pick up a hard copy with tangible artwork at a gig (keep your eyes peeled round Cornwall and Scilly this week, or in Liverpool later on).

Here are some pictures from the print-and-stitch-a-thon…

And here is the mono-printed doodle I did before I washed up the inky plate, and my favourite colour for fingernails in the whole wide world (it reminds me of cheap 1970s plastic things, and makes me happy. And no, it probably isn’t relevant to anything else in this post)…

P.S. – you can see inspiring images for my new love of lino in yesterday’s post.

P.P.S. – have a peachy Sunday.
