Just finished an audio book while working on some journal covers. Very interesting! The author, Arturo Perez-Reverte (missing a thingee above the first ‘e’ in his last name), is Spanish. The novel, The Painter of Battles, has been translated and is read by Simon Vance. Sort of a mix between a human interest story, a mystery and an art education text.
The jacket info says the author “has earned a distinguished reputation as a master of the literary thriller” – I certainly agree with that! Will have to look up his other work now.

Hey, Judy. I just got back from spring break and I’ve been trying to catch up on some things. I was trying to figure out how to subscribe to your blog. Do you know how?
Also, while I was in Williamsburg, I went to the book bindery and pestered the historical interpreter with all kinds of questions about book binding. I’d love to try it in small way — if I don’t have to buy a lot of expensive equipment. I have enough unused equipment around here, thank you very much.
Penny – Welcome home! Hope your cold is better.
I subscribe to various blogs via bloglines. I think Google and other blog services have subscription thingees where you can link on a feed from a blog and have it monitored so that whenever a new posting is added the blog is highlighted. Not too technical sounding, but there you have it.
As for bookbinding, if you are planning on doing the ‘real’ thing, I think it might take more stuff. But if you are thinking artists books, then it can be as simple or complex as you’d like. Mostly some sort of glue and paper, needle and thread. From there, you can always add more supplies.
