Artist Books 3.0

Where artists' books and the book arts meet online...


An invitation from WBN United Artists: Advance notice for Saturday 23rd April 2016. Our book this year has been selected by the artist John Bently; Margaret Atwood’s novel The Handmaid’s Tale.

On the day of World Book Night we will be in Halifax (West Yorkshire, UK) for a moors-based musical trip with John Bently, Nancy Campbell, Stephen Fowler and and many others. We will make a collaborative artist’s book in the afternoon, with pre-cut and folded books and rubber stamping production line session, so everyone can go home with a book of everyone’s stamps.

If you would like to join us on the day or join in remotely, here are your instructions:

Read The Handmaid’s Tale, then produce a rubber stamp of something in it or inspired by it (max size 5 x 8 cm). If you are coming to Halifax, bring your rubber stamp and an ink pad with you, if you cannot, send just the rubber stamp to Sarah before 10th April 2016. If you would like to join us, please email Sarah for directions or postal address if sending:

Everyone who makes a stamp will get a copy of the book we make with everyone’s stamps in. If you are sending yours from elsewhere, we will return it to you afterwards with a copy of the collaborative artist’s book. Here is what we did for World Book Night in 2015. Image above is Imi Maufe's rubber stamp for Serena Joy.
