Printmaking with the six-year-old


Here are some linocut prints carved by my six-year-old, printed by me on a photo and an advertisement from the New York Times. (The one on the left reminds me of Corita Kent. “Save up” vs. “Power up.”)

Hi, everyone. It’s been a tough few days at our place. I’ve averaged about four hours of sleep a night for the past five days. We had two more cats at the veterinarian on an urgent basis, so I’ve spent $1K on vet bills in the same period (most of it for lab work). The good news is that the other...

Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
