ABCD Meeting


Book makers in the Printroom

The fourth of our monthly ABCD (Artists Book Club Dove) happened yesterday. The theme was a container FOR the container we made last time.
Why is it that I am always resistant to making new forms of books, yet once I have made them, I feel inspired. Do others feel like this?
Anyway, some lovely container/books were made, and I have added a new page to my blog with photos of all the meetings so far: check this out under ABCD at the top of the blog.
The next two sessions are going to be facilitated by Pat Wolseley and Rowena Seddon. Pat writes:
“I am back from Australia…and have become obsessed with aboriginal paintings that always tell a ‘story’, and Rowena has been making stunning monoprints, so we thought we could combine storytelling and monoprints that can be combined as a book into our two sessions…”
This needn’t be too complicated: the ‘story’ can just be a word that conjures up a succession of images. Keep it simple, less is more, and so on. I really look forward to us all grappling with content after having spent four sessions on form. Who knows, some of those forms may come in useful in this next exploration.
