ALMOST THERE

Too busy to write so I'll post a bumper selection of images for the book. I've been working non-stop and only have about nine more blocks to cut and proof.....then it will be celebration time.

Superb!

Those pages are breathtaking!

Just reading down your page... I've been getting RSI-life problems in my hands, too, if it's any consolation, probably from playing a lot. It's so frustrating. There's so much I'd do if I didn't feel a need to rest them.

It's stunning, stunning, gorgeous - very picture a new graphic dance!

Jean said...

every picture, not very picture :-(

Natalie d'Arbeloff said...

Tom, thjank you very much for keeping up with my progress on this project. I hope your inner 'project' is going equally well.

Natalie d'Arbeloff said...

Dominic, glad to see you here. I've just visited your new blog, it's great.
My bout of RSI seems to have vanished as suddenly as it appeared. But I'm keeping fingers crossed (can still cross fingers).

Natalie d'Arbeloff said...

Jean, your enthusiasm for this work is so encouraging, I'd like to bottle it so I could have more whenever I need it. Thank you!

I can show you the originals when I see you soon.

Hattie said...

Amazing. I just admire.

Natalie d'Arbeloff said...

Much appreciated, Hattie.

The movement strikes me ... astounding stuff. My eyes move through the visuals as my heart sucks in the words ... don't know how you do it, but it's an experience for me the reader, let me tell you. Prost!

Natalie said...

Many thanks, Rouchswalwe. Wish you were here to come to the small celebration I'm having next week to fete the completion of all 44 blocks! The next stage will be for the printer, Nicolas.

Rouchswalwe said...

Oh yes, me, too! If it were possible to hop on a train across the Pond, I'd be there with bells on. Happy feting ... I'll drink a pint of quality ale in your honour next week!

Natalie said...

And I'll drink a toast to you too - prost Rouchswalwe!

Catalyst/Taylor said...

Wonderful work!

Natalie said...

Thanks, Bruce. I'll be posting the final images today... I've completed the whole thing, at last!

Stray said...

Wow - how wonderful. (Just popped in after one of your other books caught my eye on the shelf).

Congratulations!

Natalie d'Arbeloff said...

Stray! So glad to see you here after such a long time. How are you, etc etc? Any chance of a London visit?

Ms. D'Arbeloff, you were my art teacher many years ago (the 70s) in London. You were an inspiration to me and I always remembered you. Back in America, I used to get your book Designing With Natural Forms from the library to read and reread. Now, all these years later, I'm looking forward to following your blog.

Natalie d'Arbeloff said...

Sherrie, how absolutely amazing! Was it at the Camden Arts Centre or the City Lit or elsewhere? What is/was your surname? I want to call up a picture of you in my mind.
Thank you very much for getting back in touch and finding me on the internet. Very glad to know you're here.

Hello Natalie :) Your launch party looked marvellous as well!

I am loving life in t'Dales. We have a few sheep, Ruby-dog is still thriving and our boy is about to go to uni! Ms M is her wonderful self. Badger now has a little place of her own in our village, and we have wonderful friends and neighbours.

All is well except that I have been rather *un*well - I managed to develop Addison's disease & diabetes of the Type 1 flavour. A bit of an adventure, but ultimately mostly just a routine of daily arithmetic... which rather suits me and will at least ward off dementia ;) Quite good for revisiting priorities too.

I'm sure we'll be in London again before too long - life has been very much moment to moment for the last 2 years but is finally unfurling again. I will let you know when we have plans - it would be lovely to see you.

It's so great that Blaugustine is still keeping on keeping on... and your work just continues to spin my head around (in a good way).

I like your new door handle VERY much!

Much love,

Stray

Dear Stray, so good to hear from you even if some of your news isn't so great: the un-wellness which has unfairly (isn't it always?) assailed your otherwise happy existence. But your spirit is so strong I'm sure it will conquer all. It would be marvellous to see y'all so make sure to give me a bit of advance notice when you're contemplating a trip to Londinium. Many thanks for your enthusiasm for my artwork.
