After a week-long box making class with Barbara Mauriello at The Center for Book Arts, two brass casting sessions and a bookbinding class last week I found myself immersed in making things, which uses a different zone in the brain than writing. Reading supplements ideas, thinking expands them and making can become the result.
I am in the middle of researching a new atlas fold book that will be the second in a very long series of artists books that include maps, writing via letterpress, and other forms of bookish expression. When these things are evolving I find it not the time for long narratives on WordPress. Twitter, with its flits and snippets of ideas serves me better.
I did take a jaunt over to the Metropolitan Museum in Manhattan on Tuesday to unwind and look at frames. Prints will be the subject of investigation on Sunday when they have a talk on Durer’s Melencolia I: http://bit.ly/1kc0OMQ.
