Unique Ideas & Lecture Series

Bonny sent me a link to these (over on the right in the Fun Links category). They are called scary nightmare journals. So interesting, and creative.

Another fun idea, the artist says: "I started by removing the old marked-up pages, and replaced them with crisp new acid-free heavyweight #60 unlined drawing paper, handmade art papers, and tracing papers. I've included several of the more salvagable pages from the original text. These would make a great foundation for your own collage work, or you could use a bit of white gouache to create a space for your writings. Perhaps, you could let the bits of story inspire your own writings.

I then replaced the old plain endpapers with ones of a lovely art nouveau floral pattern, that matches the color on the cover. The cover itself remains unchanged."

The link is "vintage cover" click there to see more of their work.

This is the flyer for this year's set of book arts lecture series. Come and bring a friend. Or two.

I'm pretty sure that the guy who makes those nightmare journals is spiderbite.
