Good morning all.

I am busy working on the next two interviews for your reading pleasure. In the mean time,  I just wanted to stop in and point you in the direction of a few web finds that I came upon yesterday.

One is this nice little tutorial for matchbook notebooks. I was actually going to write one up on how I make mine but someone on another blog posted a link this one which is very similar to how I make mine.

If you get a chance def. visit this page for an exhibit of some of the artist books that are in the collection at the Kohler Art Library at the University of Wisconsin.  From the introduction…”The Kohler Art Library has been acquiring artists’ books since the early 1970s and there are now over 650 titles in the collection. Considered one of the finest and largest repositories of its kind in the country, the Kohler’s collection includes a broad range of creative work from over 150 presses and artists located around the world.”

Here is another online artist book exhibit from The University of Delaware Library. “The books in this exhibition come from the University of Delaware Special Collections which has major holdings in the field of history of books and printing. These collections include not only books, but also manuscript collections of small presses. Special Collections has been actively acquiring contemporary fine press and artists’ books for more than twenty years including many works published by Granary Press, Janus Press, Nexus Press, Gehenna Press, and Women’s Studio Workshop.”

Lots of great inspiration at both of the above sites.

Don’t forget to get your entry in for the first prize drawing this Friday.
