Meanwhile... (back in reality) -- RFD @ 01:29 pm

Oh, So
Mish asked me for some help at the RFD office when i got back from NYC
and Nay nudged me a bit
so now i'm the assistant editor

which is really cool
though a bit scary

i'm doing page layout
and have actually redsigned a few pages already
today i'll be creating my first whole page

it goes to the printer on friday
so we've got a lot of work yet to do

but it's exciting to be creating
even though i'm not the hugest fan of RFD
nay said "make it more like what would interest you"

i got my copy of the BUTT BOOK yesterday
and Mish is inspired
he wants it to be more like that


we'll see.

So was Taschen.


560 (!) of their best pages from their first five years. Amazon will have it for $20.

Thanks for the link, Thor

Yeah, i was chuffed when i got to sign a contract with Taschen for my interview and photos

but felt honored when i opened up the book to find many of the pieces they left out. . .

it made me feel like i'd been Selected...

i'm very happy with it
(but i'm still surprised it won't be available here in the US for another two weeks! -- so i heard from St. Mark's Books when i was in the city last month...)

St. Mark's Books has their copies in. Your pages look great -- 5 pages of photos and 3 pages of interview. They printed the whole book on pink paper!

hey D I don't know if I already sent them this and they lost it, or what, but I have a copy of the RFD logo in vector format (meaning, you can enlarge or reduce it as desired). let me know if you need it.
