I have completed my bird for the Delaware Valley Chapter of the Guild of Book Workers, a startling. There will be 37 birds altogether. I intend to bind mine as a double accordion. More on that later.
I have begun a new project which I think will involve the play King Lear. It is very early but the first manifestation is this bean bag puppet I am calling Trumpish. I will post updates periodically here, on Facebook and Instagram at emilymartin53.
I have finished my new book: Funny Ha Ha Funny Peculiar or Funny Peculiar Funny Ha Ha just in time for the Codex 17 International Book Fair, I will be at table 132.

I have been awarded a project assistance grant by the College Book Art Association to partially fund my use of handmade papers from Katie MacGregor for the covers of my upcoming book Funny Ha Ha/ Funny Peculiar. Katie has made three custom colors of cotton papers that I will print on and use for the covers of the dos a do book. The bright red and the gray papers will be the two front covers and the middle color is for the shared back cover.

My book All Sorts has been selected as a Gallery Choice award winner in the exhibit Pop-Up Now II, an international, juried exhibition of handmade pop-up and movable artists books at 23 Sandy Gallery, 623 NE 23rd Ave., Portland, OR. The Gallery Choice award was made by owner and artist Laura Russell. She says “As a graphic designer I find this book is not only an example of stellar design and color, but it is a well-researched and well-conceived work where each and every element from the structure, inspired by orange crates, to the double alphabet, counts. It is also flawlessly executed. Top notch quality.”
