Book jacket a day for 7 days …

July 24, 2018

Since I no longer work in a library and the access to the publishing archive where I spent much of my time; seeing books about book design and those representative of early to contemporary book publishing, sadly I cannot refer to that material.  However, in the light of my new found knowledge I am able to make my own tiny collection. So, when asked to share daily for 7 days book jackets without narrative (already I have broken the rules) I jumped at the chance to share.  Also, part of the bargain is to nominate someone else, I am reluctant to do that; it isn’t everyone’s cup of tea to make a daily post. So, if any of my friends would like to join in that will save me some embarrassment.  So no 1 is :

Whiteknights Studio Trail … for me

June 5, 2018

This weekend; I will do something that is and was on my Bucket List.  I have walked and enjoyed the Whiteknights Studio Trail for many years; it is a vital part of the Reading art family serving the local community each year for nearly 20 years.  To be an artist and exhibiting is an honour and beyond my dreams.  I underwent a submission exercise and there is no doubt that I deserve a place.  I have been preparing new material for several months and pretty much ready to go.

However, I am still waiting to hear from my host (the owner of the garage who must remove his E Type Jaguar before I can go in)

Deep down I hope he fails to do this and I have to cancel. Why do I feel this fear? Am I a fraud?  Who said I was an artist?  Is this normal? These questions are clearly rhetorical; no replies required.  I find this exhibition thing so exposing; clearly obvious but so raw and poignant at the same time.

So, no answers just lots of good wishes and virtual hugs to those who are feeling exposed and vulnerable for the weekend ahead.
