Soon to be hot off the presses...
Exciting news! The History of Violets will be shipping very soon from the bindery in Michigan--we hope to have copies in hand by the end of this week or early next week. Yesterday, we letterpress printed the front side of the three-postcard set. I am including some pictures here of the postcards and also the finalized cover--the color scheme for both has changed a bit. We look forward to packing up your books and postcards and sending them along soon. I'll be sure to let you know about readings and other Violets-related events in the coming months. Thanks again for your support--we couldn't have done it without you!
