if all the sky was paper

Perhaps the only blog featuring a tag cloud in which ‘Assistant Post Mistress’ looms large, The Travelling Bookbinder in Antarctica somehow seems suitable festive reading for the online book lover.
Book artist and travelling bookbinder, Rachel Hazell, is currently working and living in the world’s most famous post office at Port Lockroy, Antarctica. For six white and blue months, Rachel will be working as Assistant Post Mistress and Penguin Monitor. Entries so far include ‘thinking of poetry and missing it’ and ‘thinking about Ali Smith’s enthusiasm for the spare and simple’. Oh and there are instructions on fashioning a book from a sheet of snow white A4.
