I am trying to get more good pictures of the book, including some of the newer pages. I will try to post them in the next few days! I will be getting the printing going next week and hope to finish up my limited edition by the middle of July!!

The Theatre of Dreams is now a BOOK!

"Notebook for an Imaginary Life"- That is the sub-title for my book. For the past twelve years I have been drawing in my Theatre of Dreams notebooks, keeping track of ideas before they evaporate, making notes for future projects and drawing things I love. I also wrote a poem years ago about the making of an imaginary life, and the poem and the illustrations have come together  to make a book!
I am piecing it together carefully and will complete a limited artist's edition of 350 copies.  This book will be hand assembled and hand bound here at my studio in Port Costa, and will include collage, letterpress and a unique drawing on the flyleaf of each copy.  Your copy will be signed, numbered and inscribed to you.
The book price is $250 and estimated date of completion is now late July.  See attached pictures for a preview of a few of the pages!  
Should you like to reserve a copy (75 are now spoken for) you can send a 50% down payment of $125.00, or the full price of $250.00.  Send check to: Wendy Addison, Box 20, Port Costa, Ca. 94569.  Credit Cards can be called in to (510) 787-2164.

Letter from the Theatre of Dreams

Good News!  My glitter letters are back in production!
Both large display alphabet and small 6" letters are now available from Tinsel Trading in New York.  Their phone number is:(212) 730-1030.
I personally flew out with my patterns and materials to train the worker bees.  All letters are made exactly to my specifications using the same vintage style silver glass glitter that I use here in Port Costa.  The price is comparable to what Midwest of Cannon Falls was charging, but these letters are made in the USA! 
Tinsel Trading is a great company to do business with and I highly recommend them!  If you have any questions, you can email me at  
In my next letter I will show some pictures from my new book, which is coming out as a limited edition in about a month!
Thanks,  Wendy
