Traditionally trained in bookbinding in Auckland & Sydney throughout the 1990s, I'm now interested in working on innovative book structures and I'm drawn to the concept of the artists' book. I belong to the BookArtObject collective; I'm a member of the bookbinders' guilds of NSW and NZ.
P.S. I spent a pleasant few hours looking up all the things on your blog/website - very informative. I am one of very few artists concentrating on artists books as art practice in our area. These creatures are time consuming, misunderstood and the unique ones generally dont sell. My Masters exhibition The Reading Room last year was THE ONLY ever exhibition of artists books in KwaZulu Natal. Your area seems so busy with exciting projects - lucky you!
Hi Carol - Thanks. Aaahhh ... still new to blogging - don't get your hopes up to high lol. Mostly busy keeping up with facebook/twitter networking and all the other websites I'm on...
Suggest go view my slideshows / work at the ARTPOST ABC http://artpost.abc.net.au/kickapps/_Elevating-The-Spirit-P1/blog/137648/50484.html
and I've been pretty active on Red Bubble the last few months as will see by some of my blog posts.
I have a lot of written info alongside each of the works presented there.
And I am now following you on your blog too. Cheers :-)
Hi there Carol,
It is nice to have these connections. It would be great to actually meet up one day. I have not made a book for ages as I have been too busy renovating our old house and getting the garden into some sort of order. I have lots of ideas but so little time.
Aint it the truth! I was fiddling about on Flickr and realised that I hadn't been dating my photos when taken! So I've been editing silly dates, like 2 years before I bought the camera (?) and really, I ought to be working on prints!
Jeepers, Carol! I'm flat out getting everyday stuff finished!
Yes, I expect I will get around to binding some of my prints, but for that to work I really need to print to regular size! I am thinking of a way I could re-bind the travelling sketchbook whenit's finished;those pages will be a uniform size.
