Hi Lynda,
I just picked up your comment. It is bad of me, but I haven't been on here since I joined. Life has taken a busy turn and I'm preoccupied with other things at the moment, but I agree it is good to make contact with people. I don't know of any book artists round here, but there is a book art newsletter from the university of the west of England if you are interested in getting together with 'more active' people. If you google sarah bodman and book arts you will get her email, you can get a paper or e-copy..I get the e copy now, saves paper...
I hope to keep in touch...I think your comment has motivated me to make a little more time!
Best wishes
