Re: Journal / Diary Book



Whewwww!!!

You might enjoy the lead article on books in this month's Harper's Magazine
by William Gass. It is illustrated with pictures of artist's books.

What are you working on?  How's the studio coming??

>>Hello Jason Thompson,

>>I have received your call for entries through the book arts listserv (and I
>>am a student of Juliana Coles in Albuquerque, with whom you've been
>>corresponding) and am very interested in submitting some books for
>>"Creating & Keeping Visual Journals". I've been extremely busy and haven't
>>gotten it together yet, but am in the process of doing so. Some extra time
>>would be nice -- is this possible? I think that you've actually seen some
>>of my work in some photos that have been sent to you by Juliana Coles. I
>>appreciate your consideration for the extra time.  The book sounds really
>>great. I  am actually in the habit of keeping a few visual journals going
>>at the same time. They are conceptually different but are journals in the
>>traditional sense that I try to work in them as often as possible and the
>>pages reflect my state of mind at the time of creation. Right now I am
>>working on an altered journal book called "Find and Use Your Inner Power"
>>(the book being altered has the same title, by Emmet Fox, but the content
>>and pages are reworked in journal form); another book called "Diagnostink"
>>which is a collection of Rorschach-style ink blots that I create, think
>>about, and briefly write about (mostly just one to a few words, but
>>meaningful nonetheless) in a jornal keeping-like process (some of these
>>blots have been collected into an artist book). Another book is a garden
>>journal called "Inflourescence" which is split into two sections, the front
>>section being primarily collage, and the back section being plantlife from
>>the garden dried flat and pasted in. Other books that I am considering
>>submitting include "@Work" which include things I write about, create, and
>>collect at work; and "Listening to the Wind, Air and Trees: selected daily
>>writings and stories the birds told me" which is a collection of stories
>>with corresponding collage art -- I am hesistant to submit this  project
>>because I am in the process of turning it into a collection of artist
>>books. Is this too much? It is to me now that I'm really thinking about it.
>>
>>I appreciate your consideration and looking forward to hearing from you.
