The New Alexandrian Library Book Collection - Adding Rebecca Guyver (UK) - The longer this goes on the more I'm nostalgic for the moment right now. (Plus others)

And adding Rebecca Guyver - a book that Rebecca says was an experiment - I have to say a successful one! A constructed container which acts as home for words and images.

 I think that most of us who know Rebecca know she lives on a farm - I'm certain I have a Romantic view of farming - but for certain I know there is such a thing as farm-envy.

O Henry may be…

ZOLEP JAPOL and ZOPOL - words in Flux from Ruud Janssen (Netherlands)

I think I said a while back I was the Protector  of Z. Just to ensure my position, Ruud has awarded further Z words in the building up of the back of his Fluxus 'dictionary'.  Its good that Z is getting attention - its not always pleasant to be at the back of the Q.  For a lexophile/logophile - take your pick, this is a wonderful score to participate in.   A reminder - Ruuds Fluxus Score has been in the making since 1988 - IUOMA is one such word.  On receiving a new word, the following…

Great Package and Art from Neil Gordon

Neil sent an exciting package to me recently. (When ISN'T it exciting to get a big package??!!  WHHHOoooOOHHooo!!) 

Upon opening it I found two nice balls of yarn--just PERFECT for creating some DK Oracle™ bags for the Trashpo folks!! AND... some original art boekies that Neil created that incorporate doodles, character sketches, rubber stamps, and scratch notes.  Several pages are like a bestiary of wormish-dragons.  They're…

Returned from Travels! Here's a Blog Jam of the Bounty I Received While Away...

Hi friends! I'm recently returned from travels abroad--a lovely holiday, thank you--and I received some great mail that collected while I was away! A great fun time to go through the loot upon my return, and I wanted to share some with you (it may take multiple blog postes to get through it all...)

Many pieces were Hallowe'en-themed, so it is appropriate that I'm documenting it on the hallowed day itself...

Amy Irwen's awesome little package was WAY more 'TREAT' than 'trick!'…
