Great Cheryl, very courageous. I find David's poetry very difficult with work into an artist book. Looks very nice though. Regards, Bernd

Collaborative writing - fast becoming my favourite sport.

Book 8   – David Stone/ Cheryl Penn

Morning Masks

2 Books/4 Chapbooks.

Pushing and pulling, backwards and forwards, from Mandelstam’s black sun to Daedalus, from Bishop Berkeley to Pascal, the span of these words is wide.  The labyrinthine habitation  includes water and clock towers,  deep space and Nuremburg - not much goes untouched here.   For the finished poem, see:

Happy new year, everyone. Sorry I haven't played as much as I wanted in the 3.0 projects, but it's been a busy year for me. Hopefully 2014 will give me some time to jump in on some new stuff here.

I miss seeing everyone's work in person, but this site in general is a huuuuge kickstart to my creativity. Kudos and thanks to all of you, for being so inspirational.

Anyway that will arrive early next week, so can get on with it then./ My books are 1 accordion format - self portrait "Yellow Spectral Sun Living in the Window for the End of Time" the first 9 images in series 1. For the stitched book I am making a dedication to my god mother titled "Narelle"
