Where artists' books and the book arts meet online...
Just so folks know how far I got before the machine spazzed out, here is a scan of 'Cat Music' in progress. It shows the front cover (unsewn, glued only) and monoprints and appliques on the back. The front will carry hand-inked text.
Looks wonderful, Marian!!!
Cat Music looks PAWESOME!
Sewing Machine trouble, no so much. :(
The books looking fab. Hate it when things break. Hope your able to get it fixed
Cheryl, your book arrived. It's amazing! For some reason, now I have an earworm of Alannah Myles' singing 'Black Velvet'. Good thing it's on my Zune.
Still waiting on word from the sewing machine doctor.
Going to do the service thing this week :-) - when you mentioned taking parts out and oiling them I thought - nope, haven't done that either!!! So I am taking your advice ;-) - and glad the book arrived - more especially that you like it! Black Velvet - yes, know that one :-))! X I hope everyone has my books by now? Have a good weekend X
I've not had your book yet :( hope it arrives this weekend
Cheryl, superwonderful work, love all of it, Elvis, the red ribbon, the texts. Thanks a lot!! xxx
Hi all, the first time I am in this project and I am thrilled and touched. Cheryl, I read in your book: music is Elvis and Debussy, ask me rather what is music not? Wonderful. Thats what I was thinking a lot before I started drawing. I had made a list from things what music could be and I stopped myself thinking, Klaus, that would mean: Music is everthing. That canot be! But thats true! Once more a wonderful book.Thank you, Cheryl
And Lisa, today your book was in the post box, what an amazing and exiting idea! So many remembrances at? for? these old discs. I lay out all the books Ive received since yet, and these are all treasures, preciosities. Im thinking of making of box for all this books with my precious hand made paper.. Bookarts is music! How was it, as you did the books, I suppose we all were listing to some music?. I had the Beatles and John Cage in?,on? the player. Only these two one. Thank you once again, looking forward to monday, just wait a minute mister postman ,
