Blank notebook of 10 sheets (40 pages) with a used tympan for the cover. Because the tympan is oiled, wax paper is used as the endsheet, and frosted mylar is used for the outer cover which has been letterpress printed with handset type. Each tympan is completely unique and was carefully selected and cut to be aesthetically pleasing. Notebooks measure 3" x 5" and are saddle-stitched with 2 staples.

A tympan is an oiled sheet of paper used in letterpress printing. The initial print is often made on the tympan to guide where the unprinted paper should be placed. The tympans are reused several times and show pencil marks and cuts.

A portion of the sale of this notebook will go to support the letterpress studio at Pratt Fine Arts Center in Seattle, where I teach.
