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.

THE MUSEUM OF TEMPORARY ART


I really love this project developed by Debby Rebsch and Benjamin Böhm in Germany.
You mail a small object linked with a memory and it is put in a box of 40X50 cm with 33 compartments. Your contribution will replace another item, that's why it is a museum of temporary art. The whole project is documented on a site and by book art.
Above are books 1 and 3. All pages contain the objects in color, printed on the background of the file about the objects.
Size: 20,5 X 14 cm
Pages: 112


Page on exhibit 201:
a wooden fork designed to eat chips and curry sausages; found on a Christmas market in Germany,
which explains the funny title:
I once was a Christmas tree
(object sent by Angela Stadthaus)

Debby has a new address in Cambridge, England till March 2006.
So check the site first if you want to contribute. (GV)
