THE ART OF BOOKS & SMALL PRINT PUBLICATIONS

This is a blog on artist books, artist notebooks, magazines, poetry editions and other small print publications. Like FRIOUR is the Icelandic word for peace, BOKLIST are the Icelandic words for book (bok) and art (list). This is also a group blog in which those who are invited can upload their own books and/or comments.

FRANK & WITTA JENSEN

Object book mailed as a contribution to my artist notebooks project by Frank Jensen (DENMARK).

The book is sealed and cannot be opened.

It's called "Secret notebook"!

Size: 11 X 18 X 3,2 cm

Jensen is well known for his debates and outspoken opinions on mail art issues in various magazines, also he's an expert in Tarot and Alchemy and produces a high profile magazine on these subjects.

His partner Witta produced for a while the CARDMAKER books, a book compilation of postcards you had to make in an edition (of 25 ).

This is (the last) issue 14, which Witta labeled as 13 BIS because she disliked to end with the nr 14.

Size: 18 X 12 cm

Pages: 22

Cover by Marilyn Dammann (USA) and with contributions of Solamito Luigino, Lancillotto Bellini, Marcello Diotallevi (Italy), Theo Breuer, Anne Nomrowski, Dietmar Vollmer, Merlin (Germany), Guido Vermeulen (Belgium), Antonio Gomez (Spain), Artpool (Hungary), David Dellafiora (then England, now Australia), Rita Fiorini (Brazil)
