Inspiration | Epilogue

Posted By:Celine
I get asked about the future of print a lot. When people realize that Pure Green actually went from publishing ONLINE to PRINT, they might look at me strangely and say "hmmm, isn't that bucking the trend"? For me, there's nothing quite like the tanglible nature of the printed word - for us, it's of course important to do it in a sustainable way, using recycled papers and vegetable inks. I have yet to read an e-book, because well, there's just something about borrowing books from friends, passing beloved titles around, until they come to sit on your shelf, waiting for a re-read or a new generation of reader. I loved this film, a student documentary by Hanah Ryuchung that explores where print has been and where it is going - is it disappearing? The film, which is wonderfully executed, features mainstays in the Toronto culture of print and the written word, featuring a few familiar faces such as Don Taylor, whom we covered before. Take a wander over to her site and watch the video - see what discourse it sparks for you. Read More

Things have been a little quiet around the PGM blog this week - buried among many good intentions was the realization that I just needed a break. The holidays were a blur - mixed with family visiting from abroad, activities all over the place and a smattering of toddlers running amok, it's been, well, hectic. While still at work these past few days I did manage to sneak a day off, and I plan to do so over the weekend too - more than a year after I'd begun hearing about the Hunger Games I finally dove into the trilogy myself in the hopes of distraction and relaxation. And let me tell you... it worked! I'm hopelessly lost and don't plan on coming up for air until the final 100 pages remaining in book three are safely behind me. As 2011 comes to an end I look forward to next week (hello 2012!) with eagerness - we have big plans, BIG BIG plans over here at Pure Green and I'm so looking forward to keeping you updated.
