This blog was set up to focus on the books we, as a collective, were making to exchange, to exhibit, to discuss.
So I may be a little off-beam with this post, which is not to do with our exchanges, although I think it does relate to many of us. Ronnie, in particular, is a user of rejects!
In the "Guardian" , the question is posed: what happens to books that are considered unwanted? There is a further link within the article and, no doubt, we all have our favourite artists and our own ideas.
How about writing a post for this blog, detailing some of the ways you (that would be "we" ) have recycled books.
Carol, I know, has great difficulty with the very thought of chopping up a book! I know I could never take a blade to any of my own favourites, but clunky, outdated text books? Pass the Stanley!
This is not a "set piece" with a deadline and I know Sara and Jane still have work to finish for Round 2 and some people have summer holidays looming.
But I would like to see or at least read about what other things the BAO members are doing with or to old books. You can cross-post to your own blogs, but this is a dedicated artists books platform and I think we could all be a little more active here.
Having "smiled like a grouper" I'd better put my money where my smile is!
