A couple more shots of my day at the letterpress shop — including printer extraordinaire John Vincent peeking through the sacred currency — and a print on my mushroom paper before we realized that this mushroom paper eats woodblocks... #arevolutionarypress #sacredcurrency #letterpress #mushroompaper #woodblockprint
How would you use Sacred Currency? What do you really value? What if money was a force for good? What if it nurtured, not exploited, nature and community? • To continue exploring my interest in alternate economies, I designed this currency to represent some of the ideas in Charles Eisenstein’s book Sacred Economics. • A collaboration with my friend John Vincent and his nonprofit A Revolutionary Press, we minted the first run of these yesterday. They will likely go out to his subscribers this month. I also hope to have more soon to distribute in person and from my website, as gifts! • #sacredcurrency #sacredeconomics #gifteconomy #arevolutionarypress
It was 0° all day and I was holed up in this magical printshop, minting Sacred Currency. Alas the mushroom paper started to chew holes in my woodblock, but we managed a run on smooth paper which I’ll share more of tomorrow.
Still making mushroom paper! This batch of pulp had been sitting awhile and smelled like 💩 but formed sheets beautifully. Stay tuned for what’s going to get printed on all of them this Friday... #papermaking #mushroompaper #liveworkspace
Mushroom paper drying by the woodstove. Such a fun day with book arts and printing friends and family @still.water.bindery, #arevolutionarypress, and mom ———————————————- #mushroompaper #sideproject #handmadepaper #creativegathering
