This is the new, farm-made blank I referred to in my last posting. It and others like it will begin to appear around the perimeter of The Map as soon as I get back to my Cold Spring studio.
This "blank" is made of Map misprints and remnants which have been collaged with wallpaper paste onto heavy card stock. I like the quality of these sheets- a little rumpley and sturdy. They definitely have a handmade quality to them which I respond to.
I'll soon move onto the next generation of "blanks": ones in which more beautiful, recycled paperboard shows through.

I am out at the farm in Michigan til about April 9. I am only doing peripheral Map work, namely making "blanks", the new sheets that get added to my Map. The current generation is solid collage of various Map and Map-related images. I'll show you one next time I blog.
