I'm working on a couple of new projects, using conference papers to build arguments, rehearse out ideas and combine into chapters. It's obviously more difficult to find as much time as I did before Severin but I feel more in control of my work and my voice now that I realise how to construct a book, particularly in terms of situating ideas within a broader conceptual framework. I'm getting excited about ideas, research and writing and hope to have at least another contract under my belt soon.
Here's a great image from the cover of July 1920's Photoplay. Archival magazines and trade papers are full of wonderful art and graphics that deserve to be shared.
