"There are damned good PODs and I stand in admiration at the work someone has done to make them, which is considerable. But PODs and artists books can't be theorized in the same way on the basis of good workmanship."

"Surely a fascimile is not the same as the original. The facsimile is a utility, for one thing. It has value, true. So do frauds."

"From within the field of the artists book I do see the POD as a lesser form. Or perhaps irrelevant would be a better word. PODs have qualities all their own and some of them can, or hypothetically could, be well done enough to give pleasure. But the…"

"Pickaxe, I have concluded that artists books and POD are two different media that don't mix, like toast and enamel. The POD, if you can get one with adequate production values, which I don't believe you can, nevertheless strips away all…"

"For that matter, what would people's opinions of professionally printed and tailored book sbe compared to POD? Where the artist selects paper and has more to do with printing with a professional?"

"Thanks Doug, I'll check it out. Frankly, for me there shouldn't be a distinction between 'real ABs' and facsimile ABs. I don't really see POD as a lesser form at all, just different. Within economic systems like selling and…"

Hi Pickaxe,

It's great to be able to connect with you through this network - Seems like we may have a link thru Tim Mosely and Southern Cross Uni - We were at the awards announcement for the 2011 Awards on last weekend. Serious bookarts works by Peter Charuk, Peter Lyssiotis+Ann-arie Hunter and Lyn Ashby were collected. A very descriptive catalogue is also availale.

 

You may like to check out some of our work o Youtube. It hs two 'flipbooks' as movies and a carcamera obscura presentation.  SEE
