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.

MARILYN DAMMANN

Great artist book that was delivered to me in person when Marilyn Dammann visited me in Belgium in 1998.

It was one of the gifts she brought from the US and was one of her many contributions to my mail art project at that time:

"Signs & Stones & TREES"

Size: 17,5 X 16,5 cm

Pages: 28

A mix of photos, poetry, watercolors, and real nature objects like branches of trees, stones, cork beads and even some cord and copper wires. This book was exhibited amongst many other items during the June 26 celebrations of the life and art of MD that followed the announcement of her passing on May 22, 2005.
