“This was the second printing project for my first printing class at UCSC’s Cowell Press. I printed a lot of copies on commercial paper I was using to make blank books at the Renaissance Pleasure Faires and printed three or four on paper I had made at the faire. I made a few pamphlet books using handmade paper. I did not sell any of the ones on commercial paper, and they are still in a box in our archives.”
