The Wormton Cat : Bob Blackman

Two new one-page books from UK artist and writer, Bob Blackman. Here are The Soul Transference & Necromancer's Trade Association and The Wormton Cat. Download the PDFs and then print them out at your home, A4 size.

Bob Blackman writes about the One Page Books: "I was looking for a promotional item for my media pack and reckon One Page Books are a brilliant way of introducing people to print-on-demand and self-publishing.

"I've designed them so they match the look of my novels. There's An Introductory One Page Book to the Self-Regulating, Incorporeal Professional Body, The Soul Transference and Necromancer's Trade Association, which supports The Horsepower Whisperer, and The Wormton Cat, which serves as a taster for The Wormton Lamb. Each novel and its associated One Page Book features the same colour co-ordinated go faster stripe."

The one-page book is one of the most elegant and economical ways to produce an eight page book, in A4 or A3 sizes (or US letter and larger sizes), by simple folding and a single cut.  Perfect for artists, boutiques, and any sort of promotional efforts, a single one-sided print is all you need to create a fantastic piece for whatever you're doing – recipe books, agendas, product descriptions, catalogs, short stories, limited editions.  Get in touch if you're interested in producing your own One Page Book with Lalande Digital Art Press Paris.

St. Valentin Par Joanna Walsh

La Carte de Rencontre est de retour avec l'oeuvre de Joanna Walsh. La carte, à gauche a été crée speciale pour St. Valentin.  Regarder à Paris bientôt pour cette édition limitée (1000 cartes seulement).

"Ce dessin est une hommage à la fille d’une amie. Elle est jeune Musulman qui porte le deuil. Cependant, elle bosse dans une boutique de la mode et elle est elle-même tres à la mode. Sous son hijab, elle porte des vetements qui vraiment couvrent son corps mais qui sont tres moulant et sexy. Elle me fait penser a un poème de Baudelaire avec une description d’une belle femme ‘en deuil’ (pour le morte de quelqu’un). Je voulais le refaire a neuf donc réexaminer la poème comme nos idées de la beauté et de deuil." – Joanna Walsh

This drawing is an homage to the daughter of a friend," explains Joanna. "She is a young Muslim and wears the veil. However, she works in a fashion boutique and is very stylish. Under her hijab, she wears clothes which completely cover her body but are tight and sexy. She made me think of the poem by Baudelaire with the description of a beautiful woman ‘in a veil’ (i.e., in mourning). I wanted to take a fresh look at the poem as well as ideas about beauty and the hijab."

Lalande Digital Art Press Paris is happy to work with Joanna and also happy to produce your own carte de rencontre, or Valentine's Day or other cards for you.
