A short time back I answered the call of fellow blogger SCB at double elephant to join a 'book club' of sorts.... in this case the club was not so much about sitting around the fire discussing a chosen text as it was about MAKING a booky arty object in response to a chosen text....
well that sounded very interesting and all that to me
so I put my hand up - of course not thinking about time, or texts or anything really except - wouldn't it be nice...
as of yesterday it's all systems go - with a dedicated blog: 'book art object'.... a set text: the poem "Learning Absences" by Rosemary Dobson... a deadline (of sorts): earlier December (well maybe not a final deadline).... and eight, count 'em 8, warm bodies who have their hands in the air like me.... (I wonder if they, like me, are now going 'GULP - what have I done?!')
shhhhh don't tell anyone - but I'm actually quite excited about digging my artistic teeth into very very new territory - and a committment to create an edition of 9 (count 'em.... eeeeeeek) books.
stay tuned here or here!
