When you add a blog entry on your Page it will also appear on the Main Page - so it is a great way to stimulate some comemnts and discussions, promote awareness of your events, exhibitions and workshops or post photographs and images of your works.
I would also suggest that people check the main page regularly for what activty has been occurring, new photos that have been posted and new members.

Dear Aine, and Artist Books 3.0 friends
. . . thanks for staying, viewing and multiple comments on the viewerpage blog recently - I'm sort of more private with the artist books I have produced, I guess it comes from having a 39 year design career, a collecting background with loads of curatorial and mentoring experience.
Art directors have a need to continually hype themselves, (to build the next job & build their practice awareness) in my case "word-of-mouth" has worked a… Continue

I have submitted the book Time and Tide to Into the Fold exhibition, It is a series of cyanotypes on hemp paper depicting the phases of the moon held together in a star binding. I like the way it sits when extended into a circle.…

I need L plates here. I got a bit confused and added too many images to the gallery pages. I didn't realise they would all be visible to everyone and take up so much space. I guess I'll work it all out eventually :(
this is such a great site.

I just discovered this place through a comment on the Book Arts web. It looks wonderfully eclectic. I have had trouble finding people who know what I'm talking about. When I went looking for artists retreats and workshops, while I found many yummy ones, it was the same chunking of painters, writers, typographers, papermakers, binders, postmodern theoreticians of the sublime, and what-all into only semi-porous groups. Here, the first thing I find is a workbench forum on use of text in artists… Continue

For anyone interested, this award was established to promote artists books in the north coast region ( NSW ) and to make acquisitions for the Southern Cross University Artists Book Collection. Generally a number of artists books are acquired with the acquisition funds rather than one. The award has already established itself as an exhibition that exemplifies the diversity of artists book practice in Austalia after running for 4 years.
entries close on the 18th of July, to find out… Continue

I've been looking at all the books I have to chose from. eventually I made a decision and filled out the form and wrote the cheque. Now I have to write the statement and make a label with the details and then pack it and post it. So much administration to do when getting involved in exhibitions and competitions. I just like making the books, but I do admit I love to go to exhibitions and spending hours looking at and pouring over other people's books.

Hi Everyone! I've just joined the forum and I really hope to make some friends and share some information here. I've just returned from 7 weeks in the UK and 1 week in Paris and although the purpose of the trip was a family reunion, my second goal was to search out as much as I could about artists books. I was lucky enough to see the Blood on Paper exhibition at the V&A and posted some of my impressions in a blog post a few weeks ago. It is by no means a full review, just my thoughts, but… Continue

I think that in order for this site to become useful to everyone it will need to have more members - I have posted information to a couple of email lists but it would be good if everyone already on board invited 1-2 people who they know who are involved in the field to join us here?
Also think about posting up some images of your work (or even videos), join the different groups (or start your own) and especially ask each other questions...
A site like this will thrive with… Continue
