Process Shot of the Week

Made some progress on my next big book project: a dos-a-dos structure with a desert/ocean theme. The imagery will be quite literal, but the meaning is quite symbolic for me. The ocean signifies abundance, calmness, spiritual and emotional security; deserts a lonely emotional wasteland, a place of hardscrabble survival. But of course, there's beauty and treachery in both these environments. I thought the dos-a-dos binding would be perfect, since two separate signatures share a cover. Anyways, I'm pretty excited about it, but it might have to be pushed to the back burner in favor of things that have to be done this week.

Happy Sunday! Thanks for reading!
