After having worked as a librarian and as a translator for many years I recently started a small letterpress studio. I'm working on digital and paper editions of illustrated alphabets, poetry books, short stories, and more. The Book Art Object edition is an inspiring project for me. I'm in Group 4 and my title is Dust. On the morning of the day Sara emailed me the 100 titles to choose from, I was vacuum cleaning the bedroom. This was in no way a depressing activity. The December sun was beaming into the room and thousands of dust particles were dancing in the light. It was amazing and beautiful. I played with them, letting them stream into the vacuum cleaner's nozzle. Reading my mail later that day, it was immediately clear that I should choose Dust as the title for my book art object.
It's not impossible that the design of my book will involve a vacuum cleaner bag. As for the contents (of the book, not of the bag), right now I'm doing some research on the ethics and metaphysics of dust ;-).
I really enjoy being part of this project and I will love to read about the experiences and results of all participants.
