I’m taking an artist’s book class this summer, and we just made our first real book. I love it—it’s small and cute and I made it myself from scratch:
It’s still blank inside. I haven’t figured out how to get a poem into it, but I have an idea of what I’d like to have on the pages. But it will probably end up being a different class project.
Right now I’m working on an altered book project. It’s been tough for me because I don’t think of books as objects, I think of them as texts. I’ve had a hard time divorcing the book from its contents. I’ll post pics of that when it’s done, too. I mean, if it’s any good.
