Update

Well, I haven’t updated my blog in ages, but I’ve been busy embroiled in a move and I’ve been focusing on creating small zines and ATCs lately, however, now that life has settled down a bit, I’m going to be starting up my artist books again (hopefully).

I’m also starting to make several custom books to make a little bit to support my pretty paper fetish.  If you are interested in a custom handbound book, drop me a line!

Nag Hammadi Book Swap

I was recenlty in a book swap with the good people at the Book Arts Forum on the theme of the Nag Hammadi. Here’s the book I made for the swap.

This is really only the 2nd or 3rd artist’s book that I’ve made, so I was quite nervous what the other swappers would say about it, especially my swap partner.  In the end though everyone seemed to love it and so did my swap partner Buechertiger.  I also want to thank her for the lovely pictures she took of the book (above). By the way, the Nag Hammadi that Buechertiger made was just fantastic! Here’s her wonderful book.

A New Update

Well, I never heard anything back on the Circulation project! But I’m moving on to other things now.  I’ve been recently working on created a clam-shell box for a book collector who lives in the Valley. This is the first one I’ve done for him and it turned out great! I’ve got another one that I’ll be starting this weekend as well.  I’m also working on a book swap project for the CBBAG Saskatchewan group on the theme of the “International Year of the Potato” and also a book swap project for the Book Arts Forum on single signature coptic binding (like the Nag Hammadi). So I have a lot to keep me busy right now! I’m thinking that my next project after Christmas will be another surprise book in the mail, I have a few ideas for something right now, I just need the time!

Cables

Alright so I finally managed to mail my 2nd binding 2.0 book “Cables” out! With moving in with Kirk and his whole crazy achilles issue, I have had very little time this summer to get anything done, but now that it’s mailed, I feel a lot better (and like I actually did something!) so, I have no idea if this will get to the right recipient or not…. I kind of just looked up mybloodyself’s name in a 411 directory, and he was the only person with his name listed there! So I will wait and see if I hear anything back!
