Making an Impression

Yeh! Another book has arrived. A long awaited book: Making an Impression: Designing & Creating Artful Stamps, by Geninne D. Zlatkis, an  American illustrator living in Mexico. I've been following Genine's Art Blog for years, and since she talked about writing a book on carving stamps, I've been eagerly waiting for the book to come out. And it just did, and it's already one of my favorite book this year!
Seeing the beautiful pictures, it looks so easy! There are instructions for paper and fabric printing. The book is full of projects, ideas and models in the Geninne spirit, so refined and spontaneous! I highly recommend it!

Yep! Un autre livre a rejoint ma bibliothèque! Un livre attendu depuis longtemps: 
Making an Impression: Designing & Creating Artful Stamps, par Geninne D. Zlatkis, une illustratrice américaine vivant au Mexique. Je suis son blog depuis des années, et depuis qu'elle a parlé d'écrire un livre sur la fabrication de tampons, j'attends avec impatience la sortie du livre. Et il vient de sortir, et c'est déjà un de mes livres préférés cette année!
En regardant les magnifiques photos, ça a l'air facile. Il y a des instructions pour l'impression sur papier et sur tissu. Le livre est plein de projets, d'idées, et de modèles dans l'esprit Geninne, si raffiné et si spontané. Je le recommande absolument!

  1. Ohhh, that stamp Aude carved is great... and the book looks like a good source for inspiration!!! We also had a little bit of creative fun recently and I carved a camera logo from Lino, it was quite satisfying to see the end result. I guess it has something to do with knowing that the stamp was handmade and not just a bought one, especially with all the imperfections :-)
    Looking forward to seeing more...
