IN THEIR GYPSY WAGON BOOKMOBILE

We have been making fine press and artist's books for over 30 years. When we started, as craftspeople at Renaissance Faires, we fell in love with the "gypsy wagons" that other vendors had built to sleep in or to sell their wares from. We built this wagon in 2009, designed after a typical 1900s Redding style English Gypsy Wagon. We are now traveling around the country to sell our books, teach book arts workshops, talk about books as artworks and to seek out beauty in the USA.

Joshua Tree

Joshua Tree National Park had no internet available, so we instead got to enjoy 3 days of rocks, cactus and wildflowers.
Today, we are visiting the Salton Sea, where I have access to the internet for a few minutes in the visitor center. I'd rather be looking at the birds, so back outside I go!
We'll be posting with pictures ASAP!

It looks like you are having great fun taking care of business, but I'm glad to see you leave the internet zone too. That to me is where the true freedom comes in, even though the road is a freedom in itself. I'm jealous since I won't get a long road trip this year but I'll try to live through you this trip.
Enjoy! Rick

Enjoyed your blog--and was surprised that you were not directed to the public library for free internet access when visiting Joshua Tree.
Best wishes and visit again!
