Monthly Archives: October 2013

Clearly, having a gap of 6 months between one post and the next is not appreciated by my blog. It’s just been giving me all kinds of problems while I tried to update the ABCD page. So I’ll post the info here instead, and maybe that will steady the ship.

The last topic we explored in the summer was ‘Mapping’, and people liked it so much that we carried it on to our first meeting of the Autumn on October 19th. It was a small meeting, the food as usual was delicious, and the book offerings as follows:

Travels via the etherCaroiline Mornement’s book ‘Travels via the Ether’ was based on her recent travels around the world and used the various wifi passwords she had to enter into her ipad as navigation points in the journey.

SSW boxesJanine Barchard used cut up maps to make intriguing drawstring boxes

Slate Stone FenceClare Diprose found that ‘mapping’ led her to a slate quarry in Wales, and she made the above cutout book to describe the place and the material

Karin's booksKaren Young’s intricately folded and stitched books also used map material. One set of pamphlet books is designed to contain all your passwords. A most convenient ‘map’.

Stop press: Caroline Mornement has just published ‘In Praise of Beautiful Books’ which contains books by British artists. A photo of one of our ACBD lunches has even crept into it. I’m sure there’s a place for a ‘Cooking and Booking’ book (Judith Staines’ description of our activities here)….

If you would like more info on this book and how to obtain it, please go to Caroline’s BCF website

The next topic for the ABCD meeting on November 16th is: CHANGED
