Are you hoarding those little scraps of leftover printmaking papers? Well, stop! Turn 'em into tasty Leftover prints.
Mind your P's and Q's
I would if I could, but I have none. P's and Q's that is. We're up to 35 Leftover Lovers now, but not one of you have a name that begins with P nor Q. I realized that when I alphabetized the list earlier tonight. And since we're all printmakers, I thought I might remind you of what is believed to be the origin of this phrase. Mirror images - need I say more? Typographer apprentices were cautioned to mind their p's and q's when setting type because they are mirror images and easy to confuse. Now, I always thought it had to do with the keyboard. Left little finger types the q and right little finger types the p.
