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.

Gypsy wagon pictures


We are in the New Mexico desert, or is it Arizona, or is it Colorado, well actually right now it is Utah, but only for a few more miles.... We are in the "Canyonlands" area of the southwest, where the red rocks and sandy washes and slot canyons abound.



We just took a mighty nice picture of the front of the wagon, so I just had to post it and show it off.



Paria Canyon, near a great campground, "Paria Canyon Guest Ranch"


Then as long as we were showing pictures of our gypsy wagon we want to show you pictures of wagons we saw in Truth or Consequences, New Mexico.









And, here are a few more almost gypsy wagons...
