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.

ELLEN MAKES ME SMILE Mail Art Contributions

ELLEN MAKES ME SMILE, a tribute to Ellen DeGeneres, will be the mail art/ist book documentation catalogue for a mail art project I proposed in February 2006. Twenty-three artists from fourteen countries responded with postcards, prints, paintings, and visual poetry, including Gen Dalio's collage of ELLEN made from a Katrina relief supply box.

Last week my proposal to fund the production of the artist book documentation catalogues made the first cut for the Library Fellows Program Grant from the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C.
