I'm not about to rush into anything but as I'm enjoying our BookArtObject activities SO MUCH I keep encountering pieces of writing and thinking to myself, "Ooh, that would make a good BAO project!", and it's happened again.
Lesley at Printed Material wrote a post based on a poem by Wislawa Szymborska entitled 'A Word on Statistics', which I loved. So - in my 'I'll just collect that because it will come in handy for something...' sort of way, I thought I'd draw your attention to it as a possible future project and see what you think!
This photo has absolutely no relevance to the above post, it's just the view down the valley from my studio this morning!
I should also say that I am spreading the word about BookArtObject with the idea that hopefully more artists will join in, so please do the same. I can imagine it would be hard to have a project group of more than 8 people, as we have now, but there's no reason why there couldn't be more than one BAO project running at a time, with different people involved depending on which text interests them... but I am slightly ahead of myself, I know. Meanwhile Ronnie made the excellent suggestion of organising an exhibition at a regional gallery with the books from this project as a centrepiece and perhaps some of our other book-related work as well... Ronnie, that would be great! Let me know if there's anything I can do.
