So here it is, as promised, lots and lots of paper! I just calculated it and this is 10,400 4.25" by 5.5" sheets of paper. Enough to make 130 notebooks! Pretty awesome, huh? I was pretty psyched while I was cutting and organizing it to see all the cool vintage papers I have to work with. Lots of graph paper, which is my favorite, and lots of typewriter paper and colorful paper. I really like having color in the notebooks, so I was glad when I found a stash of ultrabrite that I had forgotten about. This paper will make some really awesome books. I can't wait to get to work! Also very exciting is the new field guide books I'll be using in the future, including guides for insects and wildflowers and some exotic birds! Next I'm going to have to go through my current record collection and decide which to use...so much to do! I'm not sure when books will start popping up in the shop again; I'm heading to Sacramento for friday and saturday to celebrate my mom's birthday, but my plan is to start gluing paper blocks together tonight, then starting on some books on Sunday night, so with any luck new books will available by late next week! Yay!
