Open Request For Journals & Artists Books

Rag & Bone Bindery, Jason Thompson & Rockport Publishing are pleased to
announce an OPEN CALL TO ARTISTS for the following book project:

"Creating & Keeping Visual Journals"
When published in 2000, this collaborative book about keeping visual
journals (not to be confused with online journals - this book is strictly
about the physical kind you take on trips or keep on your desk or beside
your bed) will contain examples of journal keeping techniques such as
collage, calligraphy, rubber stamping, eraser carving, image transfers and
photography as well as examples of different journal themes such as trip &
travel journals, garden journals, wedding journals, dream journals, artist
sketchbooks, journals as art, you get the idea. The book will also contain
a bibliography, resource appendix and a contributing artist list.

We're looking for the following submissions:

Visual journal keeping techniques:
Do you have a special technique for journal keeping you would like to
share? Do you create collages in your journal? Do you carve your own rubber
stamps? Are you a calligrapher? Photographer? Illustrator? The techniques
section will contain step-by-step examples of techniques specific to
journal keeping. If you're expert in a topic relating to journal keeping
please contact us! Techniques must be submitted as part of journals or
diaries or within blank books. (Complimentary copies of the published book
for participating artists in this category)

Journals with specific themes:
Daily journals, trip & travel journals, garden journals, sewing journals,
wedding journals, dream journals - you get the idea - Any type of topical
journal is requested. Journal submissions should focus on book & page
design as well as written entries, and all types of journals will be
considered including themed journals not described above, historical
journals and books created specifically for this project. (Complimentary
copies of the published book for participating artists in this category)

Journals and or blank books for the gallery section:
There will be a visual gallery / chapter in the published book for artist
books, journals, diaries, artist sketchbooks and blank books. We're looking
for any type of book falling under the category of diary or journal to be
juried for this section. This is the easiest section to jury for as the
gallery will only contain photographs & descriptions - no step-by-step
techniques or other copy.

The deadline for submitting is October 15th, 1999.
