Where artists' books and the book arts meet online...
To make Life easier!
I think it would be a good idea to have three choices as to the title? I think one would find they all cross-pollinate in any event. Please, we are ALL in the most experienced artist books makers. We have been exchanging for quite a while and have come to know the quality we each expect from one another. This will be a free-form book I think, as dictated by the title, BUT - please be respectful towards your fellow participants. Hard/Strong cover, accordion, pamphlet stitch or folded book, A6 when closed, in size.

I'm a book artist living in montréal. is it possible to participate ? how this collective work? just let me know
Hello :-) guylaine - for sure you can participate - we have been working together for a long time - will some of you please put images here so that we can show guylaine the sort of work we do and the standards we keep. This for example is a book by Ptrizia (Germany). The books are handmade although in small editions, hard cover, and of really good quality :-)X
Photos of our exchanges up to #16 here on my blog BOOKS LIKE STARS.
I am very pleased to work on a new type of structure. It’s exciting to escape the accordion or pamphlet stitch formats ! x
Posting one (#14 Holes) I'm rather proud of for Guylaine to have a look see although this was a very involved process and was VERY labour intensive.
My first collaboration with this group, the linocut A6 Accordian about Saartjie Baartman and Marilyn Monroe.
I see there's 8 participants listed, 9 with Guylaine. I plan, so far, handpainting each individual book. If the group gets bigger is there a chance of fewer bookmakers per group?
Oh, that would be such a pity to have two groups, I just saw Ptrzias Book for the other #15-group, and thought "oh no, I should have been part of both groups..." ;-)
Okay, one group. I agree about wishing I took part in more than one group because of the work. Look forward.
I won't add Guylaine until there is a reply in this thread, and close the number at 8? We have had riots on campus to add to the cacophony of life. They have been quite scary! I was hoping to catch up on my No 16 books but no luck so far :-(! X
