In the middle of the book production, I feel the need to share some of that wonderful experience, to walk and live through 50 years of the history of the Findhorn Foundation Community.
The book is growing! Good news is that I just heard from the printer that the book will be in sections of 16. It means that my first calculation of 120 pages can actually increase to 128 (dividable by 16) which means 8 pages more. That’s is great, as actually all the edited articles are so good, I would not like to take them out.
I am working almost day and night on the graphic design of the book now. Every chapter is a joy to make now. Yesterday morning Eva and Sandra from the 2nd editing team at the Communication department of the Foundation returned the text for chapter 6 (Education) and in the evening the whole chapter was filled with those texts and wonderful images and illustrations.
Over the last months I had collected quite some posters. Several times artists dropped into my studio with posters of performances of decades ago, which I carefully scanned. Yesterday I did a search around for conference posters and got some lovely ones, from the poster of the International Flower Essences Conference – early 90ties- to the Forgiveness Conference for 2013. A wide range to choose from! I’ll use them now with the articles about the history of the Conferences at Findhorn by Roger Doudna and Michael Hawkins. Today I went to the Universal Hall, where Peter Vallance had digged out several concert posters. I took with me to scan the concert of ex-member singer Elizabeth Rogers as well as a deliciously colourful concert poster with Deva Premal and Miten with Manose - personally signed eh!
Friday the 13th…. What a lucky day.
