thinking out loud...

So we haven’t heard from Jeanette Winterson (or her publishers) on our request for permission to create artists’ books inspired by Art & Lies. 

But then what stops us from thinking, experimenting with ideas, designing, structuring, even finalizing a “book” inspired or driven by the notion of “a system within a system”?

Just wondering...

It's frustrating not knowing if we'll be able to use the text or not, but meanwhile the cogs in my mind are turning and I'm having fun thinking about the book I would like to make! I am a little more optimistic at the moment because after talking to a real person at Jeanette Winterson's Australian publishers I was given a UK email address to contact, which I did, and I put a read-receipt on the email which means I know that it was delivered and read... that was at the end of last week so I am hopeful of some sort of reply soon. Fingers crossed! In the meantime I shall continue to enjoy thinking about it! Sara x

Sara,
Seeing/reading your past repertoire, I am sure you will succeed in the communicating saga. As for your "the cogs in my mind are turning" etc., it mirrors exactly the situation here, in my mind...
