ABCD: Tracks

June 2, 2017

I missed last week’s meeting due to a clash of dates, but Jane has sent me some photos and captions. Thank you Jane!

1. “Comfort”: a small ball book is comfortably surrounded by rolls of torn letters that she found in a skip, all enclosed in a circle of rusty metal.
2. “Winged”: three blue stitched winged forms.
3. “Imagined world”: a colourful hanging book.
Pauline  "Tracks through Fire, Ice and Ash"

“Tracks through Fire, Ice and Ash”: a box containing a pullout book of patterns and colours relating to her five days in Iceland.  Her travel diary is on the reverse.
Above, L to R in first photo:
“Tracks” A book of tracks through Roche Court sculpture park, some of her butterfly walks and Teresa May’s political walk in Wales.
“Tracks”, using a book she had made on a bookbinding course to record walking various tracks including the Sweet Track.  The book also contains her response to “Resonance”.
“Tracks”: A meticulously made cd cover. Second photo shows the inside.
Caroline:  "Repetition" A Bhudist prayer wheel

“Repetition”, a Buddhist prayer wheel with the chant ” Om mani padme hum”.

“Imagined world”, a remake of her tunnel book.
“Winged”, a concertina pop up book of creatures that fly off the pages as you open them.
“Tracks”: a book of CDs.
Above: Clare
An experiment with making a box for her “Winged” tree.
“Repetition”: a form of ledger book of overlapping torn pages, each containing a short sea-poem in wavy lines reflecting the torn edges of the paper.  Indigo dyed paper covers.
Judy "Tracks in the New Forest"
Above: Judy
“Tracks”:  Using a double sided ordinance survey map of the New Forest, Judy has created continuous coils of tracks she has found in the forest, all contained in a circular box.
Jane‘s own planned books of limpet tracks were not completed in time. We look forward to seeing them.
Next meeting: June 24th.

    Wonderful and inspiring, I’ve never made a tunnel book but I feel one coming on …
    I am open for Cornwall Open Studios this week and I am so encouraged by peoples reactions I now feel brave enough to do an artists books workshop later this year. Very exciting!
    I didn’t make it to BABE this year but the Counter show in Plymouth last year was great so I’m hoping they will run that again.
    Thanks for sharing x

    Thank you Nina. I’m glad to hear the Open Studio has been so positive. x
