Week 2 winner

Congratulations to Joanne B Kaar. Joanne uploaded some cool photos to the Flickr site of her handmade books and paper. She will receive a fun little gift to play with in her bookarts endeavors. I’ll post photos once she gets her package as I don’t want to spoil the surprise.

If you didn’t win this week your name will stay in the jar for next Fridays drawing. If you post another comment this week or a photo of your books over on the Flickr site you will get your name put in the jar again giving you more chances to win. You still have two more chances to win the weekly drawing and everyone gets a chance to win the grand prize at the end of the month.

It’s Friday…

Filed under: General — jackie @ 9:24 am

Good morning readers.

It’s Friday and for some of us that means the end of a long week of work and 2 days of fun bookmaking time ahead.

A few sites of note this morning.

Here is an interesting site on book foredge paintings. If you don’t know what a foredge painting is check out the what is a foredge painting page to see a cool video demonstration.

If you have children or are a teacher you might enjoy the blog of Susan Kapuscinski Gaylord which is devoted to making books with children.

The Journal of Artist’s Books is back in print. From the site “Still dedicated to providing a forum for critical, theoretical, and creative engagement with artists’ books, JAB is now a publication of the Columbia College Chicago Center for Book and Paper Arts. Our mission is to develop the field of artists’ books by means of critical discourse and creative exploration of the intersections of book arts, artists’ books, poetry, photography, experimental literature, and other book related creative endeavors. We are interested in expanding the audience for artists who make books, and each issue of JAB will be filled with essays, reviews, and artists’ projects focused on the book as an action-packed intermedia form of art.” You can read a few of their back issues online at their site.

Be sure to check out our Flickr group as members have been posting photos of their work and they have made some pretty cool books.

There’s still a time to get your name in the jar for todays drawing.
