"group A is good for me. I wish I had the time to be in both groups but I just have too much on.
I am feeling slightly more confident about this next one and have already planned out most of the book."
Im a professional lithographic printer interested in collaboration and the teaching of printmaking. Book art was somthing I got into towards the end of my undergraduate degree as a way to contain and display prints. Now I just can't stop playing.
Thanks for your comments about my books Stephanie! I really enjoyed working with the matchbox theme, I am a collector of 'things', thus I have a very large collection of matchboxes as well as other things from snail shells, bones from birds, pre used fabric, bottle tops - especially if they are old and rusty, books & boxes, you name it and I most likely collect it! Looks to me like you're a collector too! What form of printmaking do you predominately use? I do quiet a bit with collograph plates, paper plates and plastic plates ('Unifoam' which comes in a large sheet, it's mostly used by the building industry), it's fantastic for embossing partly dried plant material as well it can be used as a collagraph plate.
Stephanie, I love your books, especially the printed ones! your book structures are wonderful! the altered book with the objects hidden inside is gorgeous, as is the book with the birds flying from it!! Looking at your gallery of photos makes me want to run back down to my studio and start on another project! I'm also a printmaker and book artist who loves using found objects as well as natural items in my books!
