        Y'all:

        You may remember the last saga... I sold my house in Santa Maria and left for China...
        NOW to you remmeber me? hehehehehe - I know, I know, it's been months, but I've been busy having a wonderful time in
        Baoding. Well, there's only another month to go and I'm through here at Hebei University.

        The Western Book Arts class has been a huge success... at least as far as my 15 students and myself are
        concerned. We're having our final exhibition on the 17th of June. I'll post some pictures after that for y'all to see.
        They're darling 3rd hear art students, and have taken to books with enthusiam and energy. We've done basic
        book structures, pocket books, sewn sections and variations, swing book, working with leather, rechoso binding,
        cover treatments, faux coptic, end paper design, title page design, incorporating text, pop-up books, star books,
        tunnel books, albuns, slip cases and the final is three finished books of three different structures. They're a
        great bunch of students and I'll miss them when I go... but...

        I'm teaching English to kids this summer in Xi'an (July/August) then teaching somewhere near Shanghai next
        Fall. Thing is, I don't wanna come back! All my furniture and studio stuff is in storage in Tucson, my house
        sold and I'm going to get my fill of China before I get back to "been there, done that." I've met lots of new friends
        both teachers and students. I've had some sexy new clothes made... lots of 'em and traveled a bit around the
        north. Now it's time to learn something about the center and east. South will come after that, I hope. This is a
        very big country with lots to see.

        I've collected some juicy items for books too. Sent 300 full sized sheets of beautiful paper from Anhui Province back to
        my daughter. Now I'm on the trail of some paper from Sechuan too.

        Take care, everyone,

        Patrice Baldwin
