Sarah's finishing up editing on round 2 (of 3...heck, I only get one shot at edits for my books!) as I write this blog of her spankin' new December 2011 due-out book "Practical Mixed Media Printmaking." Man oh man oh woman, what a book it's gonna be! GREAT photos, GREAT text, beautifully laid out...she's such a good writer, I'm so proud of her!

Man, this latest Hitchcock book is slow but sure. Titled "Objects as Subjects: The Non-Human Protagonists in Alfred Hitchcock's Films" (McFarland & Company; Due date December 2011), I'm about half-way there with his 53 films...chairs, stairs, lamps, cities, trains, candles...they almost breathe onscreen at times while upstaging the real actors!
