The pink tape above is from Tapeswell. It's called Pink Twig. I LOVE THEIR TAPE!
I am above and beyond impressed with Dorothy Simpson Krause's new book, Book + Art. I have been a huge fan of her work for years and am thrilled that she has this new publication out. The how to is top notch, but I'm very interested in seeing HER WORK in print and boy, you get a taste for it here. If you buy one book so far this year, make sure THIS is it.
You can check out her website here. You can see another book she has for sale on blurb here. Finally, her tarot card deck is here.
Speaking of books, artists and all things yummy, if you do not know who Sophie Calle is, you must MUST get to a bookstore. NOW. Go look online to get a taste, but after that RUN to the bookstore and look in the art section.
Finally, is anyone else really really REALLY desperate or craving or in the mood for more collage, artists books, artists journals and the like published as ART BOOKS and NOT only published SOLELY as how to's? I've said it before and I'll say it again, our genre of work does not get the respect that it deserves. We want REAL art books and not only how to's. I'll be first in line to buy them. Hell, if Northlight or whomever published a book of Dorothy Simpson Krause's books right now, I'd buy them. Or Juliana Coles. Or. Or. Or.
There IS a market for it.
And I'll be first in line.
