The Awesomeness of Peter and Donna Thomas
Peter and Donna Thomas are awesome.
There, I said it.
Then they came to Vermont to lecture at UVM Special Collections and to teach a workshop for the Book Arts Guild of Vermont. It was then that I fell in love with one of their editioned books, but stupidly didn’t buy it.
I thought about that book for a year. It conveyed a message that was so perfect for the time in my life when I saw it. I missed it.
So I did something about it. Now mine.
The book measures 1 5/16″ x 1″ x 1/4″. It’s bound in leather and all of the pages are letterpressed. The copyright date makes me laugh – the book’s sentiment was probably appropriate back then too.
I love it.
There was a post on the Book Arts listserv today that mentioned that Peter and Donna had taped an interview with Park City Television. You can watch it below.
Did I mention how awesome they are?
