If you’ve been following my blog from the beginning ( a whole 60 posts ago!) you will have gathered I’m a great lover of books. I also love paper; old parchment, Japanese, heavy stock, hand-made, scented… a little strange perhaps, but I’ve heard stranger. So it stands to reason that I would be a big fan of Su Blackwell, a British artist who works with books and paper. This post was actually going to be a rant on how infuriating I find the absurd amounts of catalogues I receive at this time of year but I decided to keep things positive. Quite honestly though, the massive waste of ink, paper and my poor Post-man’s time and effort…it just really hits a sore spot with me. I have called sooo many catalogues, countless times, trying every conceivable tactic to remove myself from their mailing lists, but the bastards don’t listen to me. Does anyone know of a number to call, or an address to write to that can curtail this avalanche- much like you can do with telemarketers? Hmmm…I guess this did turn a bit neg. Oh well. Do check out Su Blackwell. She creates the most incredibly beautiful and delicate things with bits of paper. If only I were able to do that with catalogues.
