TRAVELING IN A TINY HOME THAT THEY SAY IS AN ARTISTS' BOOK ON WHEELS

Peter and Donna Thomas have been making fine press and artist's books for over 40 years. When they started, as craftspeople at Renaissance Faires, they fell in love with the graceful beauty of "gypsy wagon" caravans other vendors had made to sleep in or use as booths to sell their wares from. In 2009 they built their own tiny home "caravan", designed after a typical 1900s Redding style of English Gypsy Wagon. This blog documents their trips around the country to sell their books, teach book arts workshops, and talk about making books as art; and to seek out and find beauty in the landscape of the USA.

The Road is Calling


We've decided to leave on Saturday morning at 9:30 AM. Do you want to celebrate with us? Please come to our house at 260 15th Ave. We will figure out some kind of gypsy ritual to perform to fire us up, then you can watch Peter maneuver the wagon out of the driveway and wave goodbye!
Thanks to all of you who are sending the good thoughts...
