I have a whole rekindled passion for artist's books. What is an artist book, you ask? Well, you can find a lot of great information about them here.
My rekindled passion came to me on Monday of this week, when I attended my monthly Visual Journal Collective meeting. The presenter at this particular meeting was the artistic director of the Minnesota Center for the Book Arts, Jeff Rathermel. Roz posted a photo of his work on her blog here. He was very generous in that he brought about 30 artists' books from his personal collection. He talked about each one, then allowed us to pass them around the room. It was such a treat. It was hugely inspiring to me. It rekindled something deep within. We'll see if I can stick with that feeling of inspiration and run with it! I hope I can. I will post some photos from the meeting on the blog tomorrow, so check back in the evening!
For now, I'll leave you with some images from Google.
