Pulp Redux - nearly finished!



Close up of 2nd page

Well, if you've been following my blog, you'll know that a lot of my time has been spent on the fabulous altered book round robin, Pulp Redux.  I've pretty much nearly finished my first two pages and tomorrow is the day we send them off to each other.

So I've posted up here the best photos I can of my nearly finished pages.

Close up of 2nd page - the latch



Nearly finished 2nd page

and I know I said I'd keep it a secret, but I'm actually really rubbish at keeping secrets, so here's a close up of the first page:



I haven't revealed ALL of it, so I guess it's still a bit of a secret.

I've also added one more thing to my portfolio cover to tie everything up but that will remain a secret!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I can't believe how much work you put into these pages and how much they have changed, even from last week. I love it so far and am so glad you can't keep a secret (at least not a total secret!).

Lisa said...

Brilliant!!! Thought you'd reveal more here but i guess not! anyway I'll see it soon in all of it's glory and the secret will be mine! The wheels are churning....

Samantha Marshall said...

Jo Archer said...

Oh they are just wonderful! You have all worked so hard on this project, I can't wait to see the finished thing. x

ArtPropelled said...

Where do you find the time to do all this amazing work? The second stage of the journey is going to be interesting. I love the fact that we can see each stage on the Pulp Redux blog. Such a good idea!

alteredbits said...

i am sooooo loving this, lady! just fantastically gorgeous and wonderful and fun! can't wait to play... in a year's time. hah.

Kim said...

Like Lisa I had to look to see if you uncovered more on your blog, LOL! Lovin this book Deb and can't wait to get my hands on it. I love and hate secrets all at once. Love the suprise but hate to wait for it! It's torture!!!

Debrina said...

Oh I am so sorry to dissapoint you all.

Actually, I'm not really. You must all just learn to be patient. Lol!

Julie H said...

What a wonderful book - your covers are stunning.
Thank you so much for stopping by my blog.

DEBRINA! It was in my mail box this AM! Great stuff! I can't for the life of me figure out why the original didn't make it out of OZ. LOL.

The piece of typewritten paper is a for-sure piece in the making. I'm picturing a lifted glass with a skunk on the side of it. LOL. What a hoot. THANK YOU!

Realy enjoyed the mail art, Debrina. Fabulous. I think I owe you after that one.

Debrina said...

Hello Dave! What good news! I'm so glad you enjoyed my mail art. Yes, they're a bunch of numpties at NZ post. They get paid enough to get it right, so it really is annoying when they don't. Nevertheless, they got it right this time round - even though I had to pay them again to do so - and I'm so very happy that you have an idea for that outrageous type-written letter. I imagined a black man - a Blue's player, tanked up on Absynithe, upset and angry, stabbing away at his typewriter keys as if there was no tomorrow.

PS. I'm a Kiwi (a New Zealander) NOT an Aussie (Oz). Dave, that's like calling a Canadian an American! Shame on you!!! I'm not sure I can forgive you for that faux pas....
you're just going to have to send me some more fabuolous mail art...muh ha ha...

MrCachet said...

LOL... Okay. So I'm bad at geography. ;o)

And, actually, Canadians often consider themselves Americans as well - after all, they occupy a nice chunk of this continent.

The word maotomi (from the letter) escapes both myself and my wife. I wish we could make some sense of it. It's still a hoot, even if we can't 'get it' all.

jill said...

What an amazing book- filled with elegance, beautiful detail work, the metals, your closure, and the wonderful design work are all brilliant. This has been one fantastic dream book!!

alteredbits said...

finn's favorite thing in the world to draw, and almost the only thing that he will draw, is scary monsters.

i posted a couple more peeks at my pulpy book. i'm shite at keeping secrets. maybe i won't post the cover... once i finish it.

Tammy said...

Wow, I love these pages. They are rich with layers and tiny details. Gorgeous!!
I would love to be involved in a Round Robin Book some day. It seems the only time I see them is after people have posted their pages. Keep me in mind if you see another, please. Have a lovely Wednesday.
Xo,
Tammy

It's 12.44am. I've just finished my book and it's ready to send off. Tired now but so happy to see all your supportive, energising comments. For anyone who is reading this, stay tuned for tomorrow's update on the Pulp Redux site. There is more to come.
Ok. Gotta go to bed now.
Nite nite.

diane said...

Wow! What wonderful work, and really cool round robin. Your texture is quite alluring....

Debrina said...

Hi Diane - thanks for the lovely comment! Well, I've finished now and just put up the final photos in my newest posting.

Thanks again to everyone who has so far come along for this most splendid of rides!
