Ross MacDonald

It’s been a good few days for unusual commissions.

I saw a lecture by letterpress artist Ross MacDonald a bunch of years ago. (God, I think it was 2003.) Here was another situation where I loved his work but thought I’d never have the right project come along for it. Happily, the new Brain Francis Slattery book seems to be a perfect fit.

Brian’s book will be out next fall and I can’t wait. Those reading this blog for a while know that I was absolutely nuts about his first novel, Spaceman Blues. I’m excited to see what Ross comes up with for the new book.


If you are checking out Ross’ website, be sure to click on the movie prop work he has done. Lots of fun.

Letterpress art is terrific, isn't it? I'm so thankful when I see artists continuing to use old methods/styles rather than letting them die out. This is some great stuff, can't wait to see that cover.

Later my friends told me that if I want to play the game better I should go to earn the Perfect World Gold, so I was very quickly risen to thirty levels, and then I started to play the game alone.I go to Buy Perfect World Gold to treat myself in this game. However she was also very sad when I was hurt, she was sorry about this to me and I did not complain her at last. I was very happy and we went to earn the Perfect World Silver to equip us to become strong. Today I play the game again and I can get a lot of Perfect World money for her, I take her to upgrade and then add her experience. I have a lot of cheap Perfect World Gold and I want to give her in the game, i can have a lot of pw gold if my skills of playing the game well.
