Bumpershoot in Bloom (sold)



This was the fifth and final book I made in my home away from home at Bumpershoot 2013 in Seattle, WA. I made this book in the midst of a book buying frenzy that helped to make this book production scene truly awesome. Not only does it tell the story of how I found the Ben and Jerry's trash, Pringles can, and Bumpershoot program I used to produce it, this work scene tells the story (with photos) of all the wonderful people who I met along the way. I would have never had the time to find the Pringles can if it wasn't for two of my new supporting cast members, a couple of kind, inquisitive young ladies who "held down the fort" for me while I ran off to find material. And I would have never had the motivation to bind the Pringles can to the spine of the Ben and Jerry's cover if it wasn't for the excited woman (and her quiet husband) who loved this scene and encouraged me to work faster so she could buy what I was calling The Pringles Can Book before Bumpershoot closed for the night. As you can see, I didn't finish in time for her to buy this work scene. Seemingly under great strain she decided to buy one of my other outstanding book scenes, The Chip Bag II. 


In any case, I love the way this book came out. I can't wait to present it to the people of Portland next month at Wordstock 2013! 

PROP COSTS: $12.45 + (STORYTIME WORKED: 4hrs 30min x OUR EXCHANGE RATE (based on fed minimum wage): $7.25) = $45.08


Here's a shot of the two fun ladies who bought the Unibookmaker Book for their daughter's birthday during this production scene. I almost died laughing when they said, "I don't know if you'll have anything she'll like. She's sort of a survivalist."

"Don't worry ladies," I replied. "I have something right up her alley."
