I can’t do layout and paste up like I did in 1983. My cursive went after the stroke in 1989 first, then my carefully cultivated printing, then more small TIA’s kept altering things, then my drawing board and tools went last. I find I can still sort of doodle. After twice running some type through Kinko’s, it still came back to me on glossy paper. You can’t draw in pencil on glossy paper as there is no tooth to grab the colored wax or graphite.
So, after the pool I did a doodle on board, cut it out, will elevate it slightly above the printing, and deliver it. All this after lunch, before picking up the taxes, and before pricing more books. It’s been like a golden stream of printed materials at the store.
