With faint dry sound,
Like steps of passing ghosts,
The leaves, frost-crisp'd, break from the trees
(Adelaide Crapsey - 1878–1914)
This poem features as part of a song on the EP ‘Autumn' by Red Deer Sleeping.
Engravers Type & Oak Leaves in Gold
After typesetting the songs for the Autumn EP outer sleeve, I am pleased that Engravers type printed better than expected! So thank you again to Angie Butler who lent me the type and is very happy for me now to keep the type so I can continue to make use of it. I promise not to leave it in hibernation for so long! : ))
Oak Leaves for the Outer sleeve
I found a beautiful botanical illustration of British Oak. by W.H. Fitch which I traced and carved onto lino. The lino was the perfect size to print on the adana 8 x 5.
Autumn EP Launch
A limited edition pressing of 100 EPs will be available at Red Deer Sleeping's ‘Autumn' EP launch at El Rincon on Thursday 16th November 2017.
