Hello, I'm also new to this blog but want to give it a shot at helping me get some information from such an impressive group of artists. I've just joined a group for Edition 4 and had a bit of a look around at some of the members' blogs or sites and on flikr. The amazing professional printing set up that some of you have makes me wonder if I can do this project justice.
Most of my previous artist books have been one offs which would not satisfy the requirements of the brief. I was hoping to use the humble photocopier or my ink jet printer to enable me to make an edition. I hope this is acceptable.
I am currently putting ideas together, my theme is "Transparent" and have been trying to use tracing paper as a paper for the book but have had mixed results on my ink jet. I'm sure there are transparent parchment or vellum type papers around, I notice someone using polyester sheeting. How do you source this type of paper? If you have some experience and information that might help me choose a nice transparent (or even translucent) paper, I would be very thankful.
