social media

i have my reasons why i´m NOT at facebook or twitter. and if you pin my work on pinterest, please make sure to link it back to me by taking the button on my side: that will bring you to my board with all my art-links. thanks for respecting that.

i consider my blog to be my "artistic diary" - so i can recap what i made and which influences i got (exhibitions etc).

currently i try to publish frequently once in a week (mondays/tuesdays mostly)

People with a Google+ account: please leave a direct blog link, otherwise i can´t visit you.

500 handmade books

hier liegen noch ein paar unbesprochene bücher... wird zeit, dass ich mich aufraffe...

zunächst mal dieses hier von lark books: ich hatte ja schon auf dem medina (dank peerke) das vergnügen, es durchzublättern - und da war mir sofort klar: das muss auch in meinen bestand. denn bei jedem blättern sieht man immer wieder neues, das kann man sich gar nicht merken... wunderbare ideen, verschiedenste "bücher" herzustellen - ich weiß gar nicht, wo ich da mit beschreiben anfangen soll. auf jeden fall: wer bücher liebt, wird davon fasziniert sein. und bei für 16,42 euro seinen preis auf alle fälle wert!

a feast for booklovers!! highly recommended!!
i don´t know where to begin to describe, so i add the amazon-synopsis:

Interest in bookbinding and the related arts has exploded in the past decade, inspiring artists to explore the unlimited possibilities of the form. This title showcases a beautiful range from the intricacies of an exotic Ethiopian binding with a show-stopping open spine to others that resemble mysterious puzzle boxes. The sublimely talented contributors include Jeanne Germani who displays her own handmade papers, made from such varied materials as recycled denim, thistle and other plant matter, Chris Bivin whose codex-style volume features curious, tiny, found objects and Laura Wait presents a piece with handsome raised-cord binding connecting a pair of stained-cedar covers with abstract aluminum letterforms attached. This new and provocative on-the-page gallery, richly illustrated with hundreds of breathtaking photographs, will appeal to a large and discerning audience.
