Alois Senefelder, man of legend. A dude I would totally make out with if he weren’t two hundred years older than me and dead.

Peter bought me this bonefolder in the early days of our relationship, during a time when I was living in a tiny, cramped bachelor apartment and working for a petty tyrant and cranking out little leather bound books like a sweaty, desperate machine in my messy little bedroom/living room with woefully inadequate tools. It may seem like a small thing but at the time, having this long slim piece of bone show up in my mailbox was the best present ever. It’s still the best present ever.
I have several bone folders of different shapes and sizes in my studio now, but this one is still my favourite; its pores are filled with leather dye, printing ink, glue and the sweat of almost twenty years of hard work.
Soon I am going to get a portrait tattoo of my bonefolder along the bottom of my right forearm, actual size.
