Tinyside #1: covers printed and cut. Galley printed and bound. The paper I ordered is too thick (more like cardstock), so the actual print run will probably be printed on Strathmore medium weight drawing paper. It has a nice feel.
Tinyside #2: covers printed, cut, and folded. Text set, pages printed, folded, and cut. Ready to be bound.
Tinyside #3: cover designed. Text received. Mockup of text done.
Tinyside#4: cover designed. Text received. Mockup of text done.
Tinyside #5: text received.
Tinyside #6: text received.
The next cover I design will be spooky. Ooo-oo-ooo!
Work on the tinysides has progressed as follows:
Tinyside #1: cover designed, approved, printed and cut. Text set -- spacing needs tweaking. Paper to arrive today. Will print galley tonight (wacky spacing requires authorial approval prior to printing).
Tinyside #2: cover designed, approved, printed and cut. Text set -- needs minor edits to colophon. To be printed tonight.
Tinyside #3: Mockup of text done. Cover design begun. Should complete design tonight.
Tinyside #4: Mockup of text done. Cover designed. Made several versions, which I need to review before sending for approval.
I've been thinking about doing a broadside series for Big Game. But broadsides, while beautiful, are always inconveniently large, and unless you have them framed, it can be somewhat difficult to know what to do with them. And they're hard to carry around or share. So, instead, I'm going to do a series of tinysides. I got this idea from Anne Gorrick, a book artist and poet who sent me some books she made out of single, folded piece of paper. Wee little books: six pages max (3 sets of facing pages with the tinysides constructed so as to allow lines to flow across both facing pages). Each page will be 2.75" wide and 4.25" high. I will be soliciting some work, but if you have a poem or poems you'd like to see in tinyside format, email me at reenhead-AT-gmail-DOT-com. If you want an idea of what a tinyside might look like, see below:

It rains. And rains. And rains. And I forgot my umbrella at work. Luckily, I can feed myself off of balcony-based crops.
