Paper-Making in Preparation for Halloween

The 2011 edition of the Boston Comics Roundtable’s horror anthology Hellbound is rumbling toward publication on Halloween. (Among the stories is one by me and Andy Wong.)

Last night I proofread pages for a deluxe edition scheduled for preview at tomorrow’s Massachusetts Independent Comics Exposition in Cambridge. (Free admission! 10:00 AM-6:00!)

That edition will appear as two volumes in a box, the volumes’ covers and the box produced from handmade paper of a particularly haunting mottled orange color.

Here’s a photographic report on the paper-making session that I participated in a few weeks back.  It was actually less messy than I feared.
