When life hands you lemons...make lemonade!

This is a hand-bound journal with a hand-pulled, letterpress cover (in fact, everything was done by hand, the hard way!). This piece is a collaboration between Chandler O'Leary of Anagram Press and Jessica Spring of Springtide Press, made from the "lemons" presented by the pitfalls of printing by hand.

When we were printing our seventh Dead Feminist broadside, "Just Desserts," featuring a quote from the Washington Women's Cookbook, we had a few prints that ended up with slightly wonky registration. We couldn't include those prints in the edition of broadsides, but since we still liked the results, we decided to crop the prints down to our favorite parts, and make "lemonade!"

This pocket-sized blank sketchbook might not be ideal for keeping a food journal if you're on a diet, what with all the desserts and things on the cover. But it would be great for jotting down recipe notes while you watch the Food Network; planning the dessert course at Thanksgiving this year; sketching out how you want your wedding cake design to look; writing secret food reviews while you eat out at restaurants; keeping track of the odd things you find floating in Jello salads at your next family reunion; or even dreaming up a list of sorbet flavors for that ice cream shop you've always wanted to open. Keep it handy in your kitchen, or serve it up as a gift to to the chef or food critic in your life.
