An Encyclopedia of Everything Turns 300 Books

Posted on July 22, 2014 at 4:30 0 Comments

Two highpoints stand out for me. One, the date of An Encyclopedia of Everything turning 100 books was 29th July 2013. This means that in just a year, over 200 books have been made and swopped and travelled…

A process based art practice.  The World is a Town, inspired by the Novgorod Codex was the first recycled hand made book to  suffer this fate.

ANYWAY!! I intend to disseminate this work as Mail Art. Everyone who sends me

Dear Cheryl,

Thanks so much for your very kind words about my book "10 Seconds of Falling" for your "Encyclopaedia of Everything" Collaboration.  And an unlimited thank you to you for triggering my new found interest in making books - resulting from that course you gave at The Labia some years ago.   :-)
