I am SO FREAKING THRILLED with how our Princess Bride cover turned out! We gave our artist few free reign and once again she delivered!

We'll be at Motor City Comic Con in Detroit this weekend, so stop by if you're attending.

Today's task is to put snaps on 50 dice trays, which is incredibly boring. Luckily I'm listening to this audiobook and it's AMAZING so far! The author is going to be in Ann Arbor next week and I think I'm going to have to drive up for the evening to hear her talk. 🧡🧡

With show season starting up again we decided to make a showpiece book... this baby weighs 9 pounds and includes everything Shakespeare ever published. That's a standard dinner fork for size comparison. I'm not sure yet if it'll be a standard item we continue to make, or if it'll be a one of. It used SO MUCH LEATHER. 😅 I'm really happy with how the cover turned out.

ravenlee That looks amazing! By the way, I ordered one of your small notebooks for my friend‘s birthday (and it got there SOOO fast because I didn‘t realize you were in the same city!) and she LOVES it. Thank you! 3mo
GondorGirl @ravenlee Thank you so much! I'm glad she likes it. 🥰 3mo

Inventory day for #Studio42Books which means time for audiobooks. We just found out this morning that we'll be vending at #Penguicon next month, which means we need to spend some time restocking a bunch of our smaller items. I'll probably be making nothing but buttons and magnets for the next few weeks. Weeeee 🤪

AmyG On my phone….I thought these were cookies! 3mo

Is #AudioLeatherworking a thing, because that's what I'm up to today. #Studio42Books is waiting to hear if we've gotten into our spring shows, but when we have time between orders we're trying to build up our show stock. Today I'm cutting blanks that will be turned into the pocket and spine pieces for sketch/composition book covers.

I'm listening to the final Simon Snow book and it's already breaking my heart. I don't think I'm ready for this. 😥

#Studio42Books received a really cool request from a client to put together a set of leather covers for the Percy Jackson books. I'm really excited about this one, partly because I love the series, but also because there's so much cool Greek mythology art that's in the public domain. This means we probably won't need to hire an outside artist, and that I get to run point on the design! Now to skim the books and brainstorm... 🧡🧡

peanutnine How fun! 7mo
Librarianaut Sounds like you have a fascinating career! 7mo
GondorGirl @Librarianaut I do! My partner and I are leatherworkers who specialize in book covers. It's usually a ton of fun. Especially when we get to work on books I love. 7mo

Another exciting day of making buttons. Our only indoor show this year happens this weekend and I've been spending a lot of time listening to audiobooks and finishing up stock.

If any of you littens happen to be at Motor City Comic Con stop by and say hello.

We took a no-mask photo before faire opened this morning. Excuse the fact that I have no makeup on the bottom half of my face. 🤣
