Reflecting on Medium Memory today over @thehorsebridge 😊One of my favourite pieces. The generosity of people contributing was wonderful....

Talking about Charles Darwin in my #artisttakeover over on @thehorsebridge this afternoon. πŸ™‚ One of my all time favourite bits of writing above. Missing words are those that don't appear in the Old Testament of the King James Bible.

Hey there! I've just written my first @thehorsebridge #artisttakeover post. πŸ™‚ I'm exploring how projects made over years seem connected even when that's not the intention. This piece is from 2008, called Integer. Anyone else seeing extremely small book covers?! 😁

Book covers piling up for round 2 of #tinybookcollaboration If you'd like to take part let me know. For details, take a look at my story highlight called TinyBookCo in my profile πŸ‘†

More #tinybookcollaboration post arrived to @takenby_t πŸ““πŸ™Looking forward to seeing what you get up to 😊

Post has arrived! Thanks @giily_b for taking part in #tinybookcollaboration πŸ’›πŸ““

Well, it's not my best angle but it *was* my first live Instagram story! Fully evident in that I couldn't figure out how to stop recording at the end πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ #tinybookcollaboration

I can't actually believe I'm doing this!! So excited. Thank you, my lovely inaugural #tinybookcollaboration peeps. Can't wait to see what you do. I have no idea where this whole thing will go but I've bought the ticket so I'm in for the ride! Books going far and near: Kent, Scotland, Singapore, Maine, Leeds, Derbyshire, to name a few. Thrilled. Let's see how I feel after the postage! πŸ˜‚

Beautiful wall paper remnants rediscovered. I bought these years ago at @faversham_hat_shop and wouldn't they make excellent tiny book covers?! πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜Š

Thank you to the first 10 of you who chose to take part in my kooky #slowart idea for #tinybookcollaboration (Details are in highlights in my profile) I definitely amused myself with the voting options πŸ˜€(not keen on rejection πŸ˜‰) If I haven't already sent you a message to find out where to send your books, please drop me a DM with your postal address (which will be used only for this purpose!) As I have to make the next batch of books, I will be offering them up in batches, so watch this space for the next lot if you're interested. πŸ™πŸ““πŸ““

Many goosebumps later.... @abararebooks Show. Wonderful! Seen my second Duchamp Valise!😍

My first #copticbinding 😊 I've used the same type of paper that the #100seawalldays paintings are on as practise. Pleased with the result, and more lessons learned... I had to mend a signature due to over enthused tightening of the thread πŸ™„πŸ˜‘ (and need some coloured thread!) I'd also like to find the exact angle needed to make corners super tidy. .
Advice please on whether it is reasonable to expect the pages to be absolutely flush? I'm wondering if this will improve when my stitching becomes more confident and of a consistent tension? .
Happy weekend all! #bookbinding #bookart #100dayproject #the100dayproject
