Re: [BKARTS] 10th Anniversary of Book_Arts-L



Hi all,

I just joined you list today after I did a search on google for artists'
books.  I made my first book when a curator saw my work and invited to make
a book for an exhibition.  Fortunately I had two years to work on it, and I
fell in love with the process and that particular way of thinking.  My book
had very positive responses, though I am primarily a painter and a
printmaker.  today while walking my dog, I came across a recycling bin and
after approval from the owner, I dug out a few books I think I would like to
play with (alter?).  Now, after lugging them home, I am rather at a loss.
Any suggestions on how to get started?

Thanks,

Mimi
