I am happy to report that my response to Winterson’s Art & Lies’ excerpt is well on its way.
First stage* of production is completed, and chances are the edition will be ready for shipment soon. Of course with the holidays coming, my family and work demands, I need to clarify: “soon” in my present state of affairs translates… sometime in January!
As Angela very correctly guessed, the Greek text I introduced into my composition, is a segment from the Gortyn law. I couldn’t resist including Greek into a work related to the Great Library of Alexandria.
I plan to report again on my progress and post some clearer images –perhaps of more detail, or should I say of less moody and vague fuzziness… Straight forward pictures and in focus like this one on the left: a santa I embroidered long ago taking his place next to my book press and adding a Christmas tone to my studio.
