least because of the work and processes involved, the prices being asked

Self Publish, Be Happy Weekend at The Photographers' Gallery

Saturday 5 & Sunday 6 June 2010
The Photographers' Gallery, 16 – 18 Ramillies St, London W1F 7LW
Free Admission
Self Publish, Be Happy Weekend
Self Publish, Be Happy Weekend

Self Publish, Be Happy Weekend at The Photographers’ Gallery is a unique showcase of exceptional contemporary DIY photo books selected by curator and founder of Self Publish, Be Happy, Bruno Ceschel. The weekend long event will offer art book lovers the opportunity to discuss, admire and be inspired by publications originating from around the world. A selection of the books will be for sale in The Photographers’ Gallery Bookshop. Visitors will also be able to meet the authors/publishers in The Photographers’ Gallery first floor Café and Bookshop at various book signings throughout the weekend.
Artist-made books are an age-old tradition but now more than ever, photographers are making their own books, and for many this is a fundamental part of their practice. For Self Publish, Be Happy Weekend at The Photographers’ Gallery, Bruno Ceschel has picked his fifty favourite recently self-published books by both emerging and established artists, from obscure zines xeroxed in student bedrooms to traditionally printed photo books. In a time when the financial crisis is redefining the art world, the DIY ethos is, once again, reconsidered and revalued.
Self Publish, Be Happy Weekend at The Photographers’ Gallery will feature work by: Maxwell Anderson; Morten Andersen; Gerry Badger; Tim Barber; Alexander Binder; Lucas Blalock; Ricardo Cases; Luis Castelo; Joshua Deaner; Charlotte Dumas; Jeremie Egry & Nicolas Poillot; Jason Evans; Sam Falls; Gary Fogelson; Stephen Gill; Sebastien Girard; Terence Hannum; Takiura Hideo; Derek Henderson; Asa Johannesson; Erik Kessels; Alexandra Klein; Sjoerd Knibbeler; Marten Lange; Shane Lavalette; Alastair Levy; Jeff Luker; Aubrey Mayer; Heather McDonough; Alex McTigue; Sophie Morner; Lester B. Morrison; Adam Murray & Robert Parkinson; Asher Penn; Karol Radziszewski; Richard Renaldi; Japp Scheeren; Lina Scheynius; Joachim Schmid; David Schoerner; Anne Schwalbe; Victor Sira; Alec Soth; Morten Spaberg; Esther Teichmann; Katrina Umber; Erik Van Der Wejjde; Jan Von Holleben; Patrick Waugh; Grant Willing; and Ofer Wolberger.
A limited edition catalogue of only 200 has been produced for the event with photographs by Nik Adam, Peter Haynes and Åsa Johannesson and will be available exclusively at The Photographers’ Gallery Bookshop on the weekend.
Self Publish, Be Happy Weekend is curated by Bruno Ceschel and organised in collaboration with The Photographers’ Gallery. Self Publish, Be Happy is an organisation founded by Ceschel in 2010 with the aim to celebrate and promote self published photo books through events, such as fairs, exhibitions and conferences, books and online. Self Publish, Be Happy also organises workshops to help photographers make and publish their own books. For more information visit:

Hello all
We had a quick catch up on the Kaleid show yesterday. Erin will fill you in.
I talked to the Printmakers about the SHOP that we share with them.
They had already decided what they want to do in their half of the room.
They will have a long table along one wall (1x4m) for their work and use the wall for work.
We have the other side of the room.
In our discussion yesterday, we had the idea that we could use the chest of drawers from the studio for our shop.
We can use the tops for books and the drawers.
I will suggest to the printmakers that we can use four of these to build a big table in the middle of the room and do a joint shop.
I think the drawers would work perfectly well to hold their prints, and the shop would be nicer overall.
I will ask them this week. My feeling is that it will be a no, but let's see.

I am trying out a spoken score which started as a book at this event on Friday evening in Dalston. It's an experiment. Come along if you like. I also need a couple more people to help me by reading it. It's quite informal so you don't need to be a pro! We'll read it at around 8, the event starts around 7.30 and I would like to run through around 6.30/6.45pm

The place:
Thankyou please

Hello Everyone,
Below are the points discussed at the signage meeting today:
Present in this meeting were Jessica Zoller (Designer Maker), Charlie Allen (Fine Art) and Joana Pereira (Book Arts).

Points of Discussion:


Each member agreed to have extra invitations from each course.
Hannah Fitzgerald suggested to give both invitations (college+course)
for security reasons. It is therefore essential to hand in the invitations
from the college to ensure that only invited people come to the private view.


According to Hannah we should have approximately £300 to £400 to spend
on signage.


The group proposed some ideas, such as wall stencils (I'm not sure if this is
the correct name but basically it is type printed on adhesive paper that can be fixed on the wall).
Use the College star logo as a theme for signage.
The concern of BA show signage was raise. The college has special signage for the BA shows,
which will also be used as permanent college signage for the building. These signs are going to
be fixed on the wall, meaning that it could be confusing having different information and directions.
The signs are roughly 70x50 cm (I am not joking, they're huge!). Having said this, we might need to
create something from the same size to cover it up, this way we avoid conflicting information.
We also came up with the idea of having different colours for each course. So for the map the colours
of the course name will be the same for the exhibition area highlighted on this floor map.

Map of the Show:

Jessica Zoller kindly offered to create the floor plans for the map. These maps will be given at the
entrance of the exhibition. I asked Hannah if we had to include the cost of the printing of the maps
on the budget and we have to do so if we want coulour ones. A B&W photocopier is available but for
that we would have to discard the colour coding idea for the pathways.

We will be meeting at 12:30 in the basement studio on Tuesday, 1 June to discusss the meeting with Victoria Browne and our exhibition at Kaleid Editions. All full timers, please do try to come. thanks. erin

Anna Milsom: ‘Thick’ translation and the multimodal artefact
Wed 26th May
Large Seminar Room
Camberwell College of Arts, Wilson Road, London SE5 8LU

A talk by Anna Milsom (Senior Lecturer in Applied Translation at London Metropolitan University)

In her PhD thesis Anna Milsom approached the use of multimodality in a way which opens up exciting possibilities for the presentation of layered material, not only proposing a challenging solution to the thesis itself, but also suggesting an alternative to a linear presentation of text. Her work will be of great interest to all those engaged in questions regarding ‘what a thesis might look like’ as well as for creative writers/artists.

Professor Paul Coldwell
This talk describes the unexpected route towards multimodality which was taken over the course of my PhD research. The focus of the project was the analysis and translation of folktales by the Cuban ethnographer Lydia Cabrera (1900 – 1991). In all, Cabrera published twenty two books which provide a unique insight into Afro-Cuban religions and customs. Her tales actively embrace hybridity - as narratives they straddle a range of oppositions being both oral and written, singly and multiply authored, ethnographic fact and literary fiction. The complexity of translating such texts into English led to a desire to offer translations which might move beyond the traditional format of a written text in one language standing in the place of a written text in another. Research undertaken in the archive at the University of Miami was pivotal. The archive contains a vast collection of Cabrera’s notes, doodles, photographs and drafts. Slowly, Cabrera herself and the whispered presence of her Afro-Cuban informants became audible, and the idea of presenting multiple layers of text emerged. Drawing on a range of disciplines, an interactive DVD, underpinned by the notion of ‘thick translation’ (Appiah 2000), was developed. This final form of the project aimed to make all the participants involved in Cabrera’s tales visible; the writer, her informants, myself as translator, and the reader as active participant.

For further information, please contact:

Talk rescheduled:
Hei Shing Chan's talk is on Wednesday 26 May at 11am in the basement seminar room.

This is a bit short notice, why was it changed today and we are only being told now? I wont be able to make it weds. (George)

external image Workshops.jpg
22, 23, 24 March. Three days of workshops curated by MA Graphic
Design open to all students and staff interested in sharing skills
and ideas.
22nd March, Monday - The garden as a three dimensional page
(and BBQ lunch)
Car Park, Wilson Road
10am - 5pm
The college is making plans to turn some of the car park at Wilson
Road into a garden - this is a project that will happen over a long
period of time - but the first stage is to inhabit the space.
This project is the first step towards transforming this space by
initiating some activity.
We will be building highly visible sculptural typography to be seen
from both the school and the street.
Using any found objects, junk and detritus, we will collaborate to
develop a three dimensional visual language, that will make the first
step in transforming the car park into a new environment.
The process will be captured as a film/stop motion animation that
will be shown as part of the film marathon on Wed 24th.
Bring what you can -
Old furniture
String / Rope
Plastic Bags
Barbecue food
To get involved contact Paul:
or Joana:
or just turn up.
23rd March, Tuesday - Open discourse & skill sharing
MA Graphic Design Studio, Wilson Road
10am - 5pm
Swap and share knowledge and skills at an all day exchange of
knowledge and ideas.
Do you have an idea for a project you would like to test outside of
your immediate course context? Have you made a discovery in your
research you would like to discuss with other open minded students?
Have you read a book / article / interview / essay that has radically
changed your thinking? Or maybe you have invented a new way of making
sushi, predicting what number bus is coming next, saving the world,
bringing down capitalism, or even saving it. Come along and mix it up
a bit.
To get involved contact Paul:
or Joana:
or just turn up.
24th March, Wednesday - Film Marathon
10.00am -8.00pm
Wilson Road Lecture Theatre
We’re taking over the lecture theatre for 10 hours of short films,
long films, student animations videos and experimental cinema. Open
for contributions and recommendations. This is a chance to show your
own films in front of an audience and on a nice big screen.
Unless we get too many better suggestions we will also be showing
seminal cult activist leaning films such as: “I am curious yellow” by
Vilgot Sjöman and “La Chinoise” by Jean-Luc Godard.
To show a film contact Paul:

It’s easy to get here; we’re two minutes walk from Walsall train station. Parking isn’t so easy as we don’t have our own car park. As you can imagine Saturday is busy in town, so please do make allowances. If you want to drop books etc off at the door that’s fine, just let me know before so we can make arrangements.

Accommodation is cheap and cheerful in Walsall. The Lyndon House hotel is the nearest hotel to the gallery

Alternatively there’s the County Hotel which is a little bit further out of town

I will send an e-flyer for circulation nearer to the time. If you have any images you would like me to include in the gallery’s website, please do forward them to me asap. We have printed some flyers – please let me know if you would like me to send any to you in the post.

The main exhibition on at the time will be Adam Dant: Dant on Drink. Smaller exhibitions and projects by Sun K Kwak and Matthew Houlding will also be on at that time, as well as continuing activity by Bob & Roberta Smith with our Epstein archive. You can find more details at
Please do let me know if you have any queries in the mean time.
Looking forward to it and meeting you all.

"Metahaven is one of the most theoretically informed, strategically adept and articulate groups of thinkers operating within graphic design" Rick Poyner, EYE 71, p22.

Metahaven have created a rich variety of research based projects that criticise and investigate notions of globalisation, branding, the idea of Europe. These have included the visual identity for the mini-state, Sealand, situated on a former anti-aircraft tower in the North Sea, a public think tank on the politics of the search engine, numerous essays and exhibitions, books, manifestos, articles and projects that defy easy categorisation. They are a group of designers genuinely at the cutting edge, both in terms of the projects that they initiate themselves and in their response to commissioned work.


Hello I wont be able to make it to the Leeds fair but I would still like to send stuff up, sorry I didn't come to the meeting either. I shall be around all day tomorrow in uni If there is anyone there to talk leeds. :-)


Harald and I are busy working on all things GIAB 2010, and are pleased to announce that the website will go online by the end of this week. If you have not already done so, please send your images and information for the website and catalogue to us. The website will go live regardless of whether we have information and images from everyone.

Also, FRIDAY 12th MARCH is the deadline for informing us if you would like to take part in the day trip that will be on the Sunday 18th April. It should cost no more than £20 per person, but it does depend on numbers. We will be going on a boat trip on Loch Lomond. Family and friends are more than welcome to join us - just let us know numbers.

We will be providing participants with information about the set up arrangements shortly, and will include googlemaps etc to help you

Please find attached a promotional postcard we have produced and will be distributing widely. Please pass this on to people you think may be interested in the event.

We look forward to hearing from you shortly.

Best wishes,

FE, Third Year BA & MA Students will again this year, be able to loan Data Projectors or TV’s and/ or DVD Players from the CLS for on-site Degree Show purposes.
Those wishing to loan equipment for use during their assessment/ show must register their interest at the CLS no later than Friday 30th April 2010. As initial demand is always greater than supply, available equipment will be allocated on a ‘lottery’ basis. Results of the draw will be available from the CLS on Tuesday 4th May.
This year we will be charging a flat-rate hire fee of £20 on data projectors, mainly to cover the rising cost of replacement bulbs (currently £165+ each!). As it has also been our experience that students frequently book items ‘just in-case’ and then they don't bother to collect or cancel their booking which disadvantages other students, the fee also encourages Users to think twice before booking unnecessarily which in turn, makes equipment available to others who really do need it. The fee is payable by Friday 7th May 2010.
Students who have not paid their fees by this date will forfeit their booking and the equipment will be offered to the next ‘lottery’ entrant and so on.
It is interesting to note that in past years, the CLS has had enough equipment to supply all those who were intent on using a data projector as part of their final show.
Due the high risk of damage/ theft during the show period and for year-end administrative reasons, we do not loan other items of equipment for assessment/ show purposes.

I think it is 3-5000 words including bibliography..
​If you look at the Research Paper Brief sheet or document posted in Course Docs you will see that it is the main body of text that must be 3000-5000 words. The bibliography, abstract, title sheet, etc are additional to that.

Anyone know if there is a type size we have to use for our essay? and if it has to be double spacing?


I believe it's 12pt and double-spaced but I'm not sure. Do we need to include word count and is it including or excluding bibliography? Thank you

__Jonathan Barnbrook and his studio have been active since 1990,
working across a broad range of disciplines including graphic design,
industrial design, typeface design and film.
The studio divides its time between commercial work on an
international basis for museums and cultural institutions and non-
commercial projects. One of Barnbrook Design's most visible forms of
activity is in the world of typeface design where they have extended
a socio-political view to this often quietly traditional world.
Non-commercial collaborations include art directing and producing
work with 'Adbusters' the leading activist magazine. In Britain,
Barnbrook Design has become very well known as a result of
collaboration with major figures in the British art scenes such as
The Saatchi Gallery and Damien Hirst.__

Dear colleagues, if any of you have pieces of 35mm film that they don't know what to do with, please can i have them?:), for book purposes, of course. Just leave it on my desk in the studio :)

Thank you- Irena.

website and catalogue information please
Dear GIAB 2010 participants,

We are currently constructing the 2010 website, which we aim to have up and running at the end of this month.

Therefore we need some information from all of you. This can be text and/or images, weblinks, contact details [if you'd like],... relating to your artists books, your artistic practice, etc..

Have a look at the 2008 website to get an idea of what people gave us then:

As we are also making a catalogue for the 2010 event, it would be good if you could provide us with images of approx. 10x15cm @ 300dpi. The catalogue will be in greyscale, something to keep in mind when choosing images... - just email us the images and text, we will resize them for the web and for print.

The information for the website will be used for the catalogue too [space permitting...].

Those of you who participated in 2008 - we can use your existing information, if you wish.

We look forward to receiving your information.

best wishes

external image clear.gif
Little Wonder ...
3-28 February 2010

Ward’s artists’ books display playful ingenuity, sensual textures and intimate scale. The exhibition draws together scattered milestones from boyhood to adulthood, laying bare the common mortifications of youth so excruciatingly private but so utterly universal.

Little wonder... pays homage to the Brooke Bond Tea Card albums of the 1950s and ‘60s, replacing the collector cards on birds or motors with a series of artists’ books accompanied by Ward’s poignant moments and personal admissions.

Little wonder ...
A series of thirty cards of discontinuities, personal schisms and varying timescales. Designed by Jonathan Ward and published by KALEID editions. A limited edition of five hundred silkscreen and digital printed collector albums accompanied with a selection of laser cut tea cards. To complete the set if thirty, the final cards will be posted to each collector by Royal Mail in tandem with Ward’s future publications.

The exhibition will also feature artists’ books by Yvonne Bucheim, Chris Hill, Rob Hunter, Dawn Mason, Jonathan McNaught and Ben Newman.



Good Wives and Warriors

Curious: the craft of microscopy
An exhibition by Susanna Edwards
Tuesday 16 February-Saturday 3 July
Qvist Gallery, Tuesday-Saturday 10am-5pm
Free and open to all

Six years ago artist Susanna Edwards happened upon a collection of Victorian microscopic slides in a second-hand shop. Intrigued by the creativity and dexterity involved in making these delicate objects, she began to research the history of microscopy. Her exhibition traces her project, exploring microscopy as craft and technology, art and science. Through stunning photography, her exhibition reveals the way in which developments in microscopy have changed the way we see the world.

Supported by the Royal Microscopical Society, the Arts Council, London, and the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.

We would like to invite all MA students to exhibit in the above forth coming exhibition
If you are interested in getting involved please email asap Marcus or Joana
Hope to hear from you

The neurological condition, synesthesia, challenges conventional views about perception. Those who experience it are able to perceive a richer version of reality, in which certain senses trigger further, otherwise separate, senses. The name synesthesia literally means 'joined sensation', or 'sensation together', as different senses combine, this seemingly irrational coupling will shape the 'Eggshell Clangwave Oscillator System Looking Quiet' exhibition.

A synesthete may perceive letters or numbers as inherently coloured, numbers or dates of the year may be perceived as having a specific location in space or each its own personality, from the mere sight of a motion some synesthetes automatically hear sound. Through language we are used to associating sound with ideas, and the written word is associated with the sound it represents, but for the synesthete further involuntary sensations occur, they experience a deeper connection of the senses.

Graphic design at its richest thrives upon layered associations, the alchemy of a concept becoming form, multiplying the resonance of its meanings, revealing previously unacknowledged connections. A consideration of the highly subjective state of the synesthetic experience encourages an attempt to further these associations, to confuse and contradict the combinations of the senses. For touch, taste, smell, sight and hearing to be interconnected is a defiance of the usual view of reality.The relationship between multi-sensory experiences and creativity could lead to artistic insight - and it is from this departure point that the work of this exhibition is conceived, a new 'joined sensation'.

finally updated timetable
please note changes....

part-timers year 1&2 tutorial timetable

As part of our partnership with Cape Farewell*, staff and students from CCW have been asked to participate in SHIFT festival at the Southbank Centre, 30th January 2010.
SHIFT festival (Tuesday 26th – Sunday 31st January 2010) provides a moment for contemplating change – the colossal change that is happening to our planet, and the changes in our behaviour that can help to stop it. Cape Farewell and Southbank Centre have put together a programme of work that will stimulate and challenge audiences and will provoke creative responses.

This programme includes ‘Expeditions by the Dollis Brook Route’ with staff and students from Camberwell, Chelsea and Wimbledon participating in three walks, one from each college, which will then converge on the Southbank Centre, where groups will curate a spontaneous exhibition based on their experience.
The project is based on the notion of travel for travel sake is becoming a difficult activity to justify. In the spring of 1790, Xavier de Maistre, confined to his room under house arrest, embarked upon a voyage around his bedroom, a trip every bit as arduous as that of Magellan and Cook. The result was “A Journey Around My Bedroom” followed by the equally adventurous “A Nocturnal Investigation Around My Room”.

Private View: Tuesday 5th January 2010 6-9pm
KALEID is delighted to announce an exhibition of new work by artists Louise Bristow and Owen Bullett. The artists working from very different starting points move towards an unravelling of the 3-dimensional and the instantiation of sculptural artists’ books.

external image clear.gif

Platonic, 6-31 January 2010
Bristow has taken geometric rationalisation one step further. Each of her arrangements is overlaid and cut with a Euclidean net and offers instructions to fold and stick. Once assembled, each page is transformed into one of the five Platonic Solids: tetrahedron, cube, octahedron, dodecahedron and icosahedron.

external image clear.gif

A Line of Thought, 6-31 January 2010
Bullett’s sculptures and maquettes offer a Möbius-like play on planes as their twists and convolutions serve to defy gravity whilst confusing a clear definition of boundaries. The sequential nature and its analogy with the book form the basis for A Line of Thought whose narrative offers no specific beginning or end, defined instead by an investigation of the mechanical workings of the tome and the reading of a physical story.

NEW Drop-in Workshops
KALEID hosts free drop-in artists’ books workshops facilitated by exhibiting and visiting artists.

Platonic Artists’ Books, Sunday 17th January 2010 1-5pm
Join Louise Bristow to create your own artists book formed from platonic shapes from found printed matter to collage, cutout, fold and stick.

Handview, Sunday 31st January 2010 1-5pm
Join Anak to contribute to an upcoming small press publication. Anak will be on-hand to photograph your impromptu performance pieces for Handview, an archive of gestural visual opinions from people all over the world.

invites you to SUPPORT STRUCTURES in dialogue with Displayer 03
A double book launch with interventions, screenings, performances and conversations hosted by Céline Condorelli and Doreen Mende
Wednesday 16 December, 7pm

The two publication projects SUPPORT STRUCTURES and Displayer 03 were made independently, and under different conditions – the first out of a self-organized initiative, and the second within the framework of an art academy – but emerged from similar concerns, starting from the re-politicisation of the cultural sphere and how it is conditioned by its modes of display. Both publications were born out of the realization that certain vocabularies were missing or absent, and to re-invent new ones in response. This event will explore possibilities for thinking through supporting structures and modes of display, towards the production of space as a form of exhibition practice and as a permanent, collective construction site.
The evening will host a dialogue between Céline Condorelli and Doreen Mende, performed through both publications and interrupted by various contributions including: Martin Beck’s video work About the Relative Size of Things in the Universe, a filmed Displayer by Filipa César, and the 10th anniversary 2nd edition set of Fluffers by Flatpack 001 (Mark and Stephen Beasley). 23 packs of the Fluffers II cards will be hidden upstairs at The Showroom, for visitors to find and keep.

I have just put a notice on the MA Wiki front page booking the Students' Common Room on Dec 9th.
This follows discussions amongst ourselves about exhibitions, space and the opportunities to handle books.
The idea is that we use the students' common room on Dec 9th to show the work we made for Redell and anything else we want to show.
Susan said that she and Les could come and see the Redell work during the Mid-Point Review meeting 10-12.30.
Then we can invite the other MA students to drop in and see the work from 12.30 to 13.30 which could provide a valuable opportunity to get feedback
and for work to be seen and handled (or even a bazaar?!) and practice for a table at a BookArts Fair.
Is this good?

Sounds great! Erin

GIFTED Peoples Party

MA Visual Arts Christmas Party

There will be an MA Visual Arts Christmas Party on the 2nd Dec at 4.30 at Wilson Rd (upper gallery space).
This will take place at 4.30pm after the artists talk by Mark Harris.
The party has a twist, an exchange of gifts.
Each party goer is invited to bring a drawing or work on paper. They will be displayed in the upper gallery from 10am that morning.
At the party each participant party goer will have their name in a box and at the party take at random one name from the box which entitles then to be gifted that artists work at the end of the evening.

This act of generosity will give you a beautiful gift and a potential Turner Prize artists work future star, gallery director, writer or curators piece.

Works must be on paper no larger than A3, and collected by a designated person in each of the pathway groups (student groups or reps can elect this person).
That person will meet the other pathway show organisers to hang and label all the work on the morning of the 2nd December.

On the 18th November at 10.30am the ‘party show organisers’ will meet Finlay Taylor the MA Printmaking subject leader to plan the exhibition hang and ‘gifting’ event. (Wilson Rd office)

Hi lee,
Dan and I are meeting in the staff canteen at 12.30 Tues 13th to discuss the embedded book seminar. Can you make it?
Thanks, Christine

Qiongjie I don't know your email?
Just to let you know our group for the embedded books seminar will be meeting on Tuesday.

hello, george:
my e-mail:

Hi everyone. This is what I am performing in.

FRIDAY 9th OCTOBER - Mark Baker from the international office will be in the small seminar room in the basement of Wilsons road from 10.00 - 12.00, to offer support for all Overseas students and all European students [who feel they need English Language support]. This will run every week, same time same place.
This is highly recommended for all overseas students, and your course leaders will be monitoring attendance, as we see this as being critical in supporting your studies here at Camberwell. As you have encountered, the MA is focussed on critical questioning and debate, a skill that is complex for home students let alone overseas students so please take advantage of this offer.

message for Joana: the book I was speaking of yesterday where one short text is rewritten hundreds of ways is,'Exercises in Style' by Raymond Queneau (let me know if you can't find a copy-) susan

does anyone know if there are any printers at wilsons road that we can use?
thanks george

there are two printers in the IT room, colour and bw. Irena

Hello everyone,

I lost my reflective journal and a book last Wednesday and I think it might have been during the RLM at Wilson's hall. I have been looking for it for a few days and it's nowhere to be found. If you do see it by any chance please let me know. It's a Ryman black A5 notebook with an elastic band. The book is not so important but it's called Indie Publishing.

Thank you

The email for Emily (the Chelsea librarian) is
Was also wondering if anyone would be interested in starting a print club?
Was thinking we could set small briefs once every few weeks or so to develop the actual crafts.
Possibly put them towards an exhibition of some kind? Just an idea I was toying with.

I think its nice idea, I would definitely join this club... lets start, because usually best ideas comes during the process.

Exhibition in the library October 16?

Hi everyone
I have enquired at the library and we could have an exhibition from October 16 - I have got the forms to fill out.
I thought we could call it Beginnings and show the work we did with Helen and maybe have another exhibition when we make the finished pieces in November.
Can you email and let me know what you think please? If you think this is a good idea and would like to take part can you email the name of your piece and your name as it would appear in the exhibition and I will make up labels etc.
If we go ahead it would be great if someone would like to help set it up on 16th.
Please email to
thanks pauline
Hope you will find it interesting. Take a look what's going on with book arts in Lithuania:) Eva

Workshop: Bookarts MA Wellcome Collection, with Redell Olsen

Tuesday 20th and 27th October 2009

183 Euston Road London NW1 2B

Time: 11.00-12.00 or 12-1 Meet in the cafe in your specific group & time

We will be using Henry Wellcome’s collection of medicine related objects
as starting points for a writing project that will focus on different
types of textual production which use found material.

In order to prepare for the workshops I would like you to do the following:


Before we begin our project at the Wellcome Collection please research
some of the following artists and writers. Consider their rich and
varied approaches to writing and representing the body and the self.
Make notes to bring with you about styles of writing, images, ideas or
anything else that you feel might be useful to you in your own work.
Come prepared to discuss your research.

Artists Books Online:

Johanna Drucker. Dolls of The Spirit. 1980.
Charles Bernstein and Susan Bee. Little Orphan Anagram. Granary Books, 1997.
Joan Lyons. The Gynecologist. Visual Studies Workshop Press, 1998.
Elissa Joy. The Return of the Liposuctioned Corpse: Love Letters to
Madmen. 1993.
Roni Horn. Library of Water (ongoing).

Poets to Research:

Craig Dworkin. Smokes.
Madeline Gins. “How To Breathe.” p. 98.
bp nichol. The Matryrology.
Kenneth Goldsmith. Fidget.
C.D. Wright. Deep Step Come Shining.

See also: Gertrude Stein, Mina Loy, Bernadette Mayer, Anne Carson,
Caroline Bergvall, Alice Notley, Rachel Blau Du Plessis.


Mona Hatoum, Louise Bourgeois, Robert Gober, Annette Messager, Kiki
Smith, David Wojnarowicz.

2. Now visit these images from the Wellcome collection online at:
(‘understanding the body images 1 – 6’)

Choose an image to respond to and write for 15 minutes.
Return to your research into the writers listed above and consider how
you can incorporate some of their strategies for writing into what you
have written. For example do they use the page in interesting ways? How
have they used punctuation? Do they use short or long phrases? Columns?
Single words? Etc.

Rewrite your piece of writing in response to the writers that you have
researched and that you like.

Please bring the completed draft of your writing with you (max. 250
words, A4 typed) to our first session.

Finally - in order to develop your project after the two workshop
sessions end you may find it helpful to collect images and texts that
you wish to work with that are related to the body and health.

Please bring pens and paper to write with!

this opportunity has come
through from an ex-bookarts student:

Lets get together and create our Collective Atlas!
The idea is to create a representation of the world through people who know the places.
Think of a village/town/city that you have spent time in. The task is to try and represent it the best you can in one simple book.

There are just 2 rules: The book must only be made from one A4 sheet of paper or card (of your choice) and can only be folded into the format you want. Cuts can be made but the sheet must remain relatively whole – so not cut right in half etc.
You can use one or both sides of the sheet and use any media.
Send your book to:
Somethink Collective
97 Benview
Please include your name on your book. And when sending then please include an email address that we can contact you on to inform you of developments.
The books will be collected with the idea of finding exhibiting opportunities. It would be great to get a group of them together for the Small Publishers Fair in November! But the project will be ongoing.
They will also be uploaded on to the Blog!
any questions - please contact us at
