MORE PICS OF BOOK






I finally have more pictures of the book, but first, a photo of my antique letterpress, which I am using to do much of the custom printing involved. This press is over 100 years old and I have many fonts of antique lead and hand carved wood type in the type case next to it.
























The next pic is some neat stuff on my table top that I am using in the book. There will be lots of vintage paper and materials used in the printing and binding of the book.
The next pictures are of different pages in the book, and I hope to show that there will be many inclusions, such as a ticket to the Theatre of Dreams, and an Opening NIght poster! At the end of the book, there is a beautiful surprise, but I cannot show it yet! There will be a limited edition of 350 copies, and I have pre-sold 98. I do not expect them to last through the fall. If you would like a copy, please call or write at the address and number listed in my previous post. Each copy is $250, and I can reserve a copy for 50% down payment!

Hi Wendy,

Looking forward meeting you. Oh boy, a new book, neat news. I'll check the piggy bank.
What a surprise since that I just today rec;d my special Rogers Gardens event postcard. My favorite local nursery I often go to in town. A beautiful place at the sea.. Funny too, because, I'll be in Pleasanton, CA later in August. Then I'll be in Porta Costa. Oh, Boy..
I can't wait.

Warmly,
Karla

Hi Wendy!

Yay! I'm so happy you finally have a blog! It was such a treat to be able to meet you (along with my other PFATT sisters during Pfatt Pfest) back in April. And to see your shoppe and tour your studio was truly a magical experience for me! You're such an inspiration for many of us! I feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to purchase your Theatre of Dreams book too. I love seeing the pictures of all of the little special touches you are adding! I know I will treasure it forever!

Enchanted Blessings!
Joyce
