Blue Marble Girl Flat Back Book
March 31st, 2014 | Link
“Blue Marble Girl” is a song by Howe Gelb and has nothing to do with this book, though when I was thinking about blue marbled paper somehow the words came out that way.
Memory is funny. Thinking about that song made me think of a conversation I had with Howe after a show he played at Schubas in Chicago in 2001, and then I realized that was nearly 13 years ago, and that I realized I’d first seen Giant Sand almost 20 years ago. It makes me feel old! But I digress. (Old people will do that.)
Finished size about 6-1/2″ wide by 9-3/4″ high; 160 pages in French Paper Co. Speckletone text (70 lb) in True White. Asahi book cloth in raw black silk, and I forget who made the marbled paper, though I’m sure I got it at Talas.
