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.

LOIS KLASSEN & the RENEGADE LIBRARY

Booklet documentation of the RENEGADE LIBRARY project, which was a call to produce collaborative book art. The project started in 1997, coinciding with my own travels to Canada and the USA and involved 730 book creators from 37 different countries.

This makes it still the top book art project ever!

Size: 21,5 X 13,5 cm

Pages: 80

Artist book by Lois, a reaction on the fact I gave her one of my favorite books:

"The hearing trumpet" by Leonora Carrington.

Lois made this book based on certain quotations of LC and mailed it to me around 1998.

Delicious handmade book hold together with a bone (also a reference to her own bone project)

Size: 12 X 12 cm

Pages: 18

Lois latest project is Comforters, uniting squares to make quilt blankets, sent to refugee camps all over the world.

She documents the Comforter actions in these delicious little books. A new one reached me today, September 5, 2005

Size: 14 X 10,5 cm

Pages: 20
