Artists´ books seem to be a well established and defined art genre especially in the English-speaking part of the world - but that´s not quite the situation in Denmark and the Nordic countries. However, something is beginning to happen...
To be part of that evolution some artists have established CON-TEXT a new weblog meant to function as a common forum and meeting place for Nordic graphic artists, mixed media artists, writers, philosophers, poets, paper makers, illustrators,… Continue

I spent two days on the University of Alaska’s campus teaching students and community members how to bind three styles of books. We had a great time! Outside the snow was melting, the sun eventually came out, and there was even a moose sighted in the parking lot

I've been digging around in my stuff lately, and though much of my older work is still in storage on the other side of the country, I do have some of my older books here. So I've decided to photograph them and post them here, starting with the oldest one and working my way up to the most recent. This is going to take a while, but I'll start when I get back from the printshop this evening. First up will be a very awkward (in many ways) book of old drawings and poetry I made in 1992.

This week I'm working on several books for a show in north Seattle (7525 41st Ave. N.E.), May 9th & 10th. I'm also putting together kits for making accordion books. This is a lot of work in a short period of time. Don't know how much I will actually get done. I have to go back to work, the following week, at the theatre, and I'm trying to cram cleaning and laundry, and taking out the garbage, and removing all the old food, that is now inedible, from the refrigerator. I think the cleaning… Continue

I wonder, do any of you have recommendations about artists' book related or printmaking related places in either Venice or Padova (Padua) that I could visit later this year? It could be suppliers, papermakers, print studios, art collections, art schools... I'm planning a European trip courtesy of my Air Miles and I'll be taking in the IMPACT conference in Bristol, UK and a family holiday in the Veneto, half way between Venice and Padova and it would be great to have some specific… Continue
