Hello Susan, it's a timewarp - thanks to Artist Books 3.0 we meet again, fifteen years since I interviewed you on video - a really interesting view of your memorable works. In that series of videos, Bob Cobbing (UK), Christ & Jean-Claude, and Purgatory Pie Press have been completed on DVD in the past twelve months, and yours is on the list when I get time. There's the rub: my life is always so full of projects I never seem to stop ... The interviews include Nance O'Banion, Ronald King (UK), Warren Lehrer, Phillip Zimmerman, and many more. Look forward to talking further ... Richard
If you have a mac, iweb is very easy to use. It is part of iLife. Also, there are people you can work with online, I googled artists websites. Some charge a monthly fee, depends on what you want to fool with. I would look at what's available online, click on the websites that use a template you like and see how they actually work. One thing to ask yourself is do you want to sell online, or is that not so important? Foliotwist.com looks pretty clean.
You're very welcome! Make sure you get rid of this flu thing completely before you go crazy again, otherwise it'll linger... You mentioned something about a website the other day. I'm going to leave the host I have at the moment, can't get any support from them, and they're not user-friendly at all.
I think the "secret" is to keep the ball rolling. I ordered postcards, and have contacted somebody about making a mold for me. Now I need to find somebody to build a proper website. I get sidetracked, though. Trying to organize a 65th birthday party for Manny with +/- 100 people, so that's keeping me a tad busy at the moment. Have started a tetratetra on Michelle Obama, and some form of cartoon about the workshop though.
I use Art Clay Silver 650, it's slow dry - low fire. It comes in paste, clay, overlay, paper (!) and syringe form. One of the things I want to try is to have the porcelain book form as a base and the text in silver, or maybe an image; will have to experiment. I took a workshop with Alexandra Daini (www.adaini.com). Also, check out www.honudream.com and www.bbsimon.com. You can easily make several pieces in a day.
Hi, Susan. I am so sorry I missed you at Shakerag. I had planned to come down. I am just recovering from an intense response to a fairly routine medical procedure — spent a week in the hospital and it is taking me awhile to bounce (hmm) back. I am going to plan a visit your way sometime this summer. Yer bud, Cindy
The exhibition presents two connected bodies of material: a survey of artists’ books by Australian painter, sculptor and bookmaker Robert Jacks (1942-2014), and an extensive selection of publications drawn from Jacks’ own collection, many of which were purchased from Printed Matter in the early years of the organization.
