From Link to Link

Not feeling well today so I've been in bed jumping from link to link. This series of links started here at Stitchwork Jackie's blog and this led me onto Susan Mills (book artist) wonderful website which has some wonderful little videos of her books; my favourite of hers is Garden Ledger. While searching her website I found a link to her project with Full Tilt where she interviews artists and others about books and bookbinding: I started listening to the interview with The Reanimation Library which of course led me onto their website; 
The Reanimation Library is a small, independent library based in Brooklyn. It is a collection of books that have fallen out of mainstream circulation. Outdated and discarded, they have been culled from thrift stores, stoop sales, and throw-away piles across the country and given new life as resource material for artists, writers, and other cultural archeologists

This is a really intriguing project which I am sure I will come back to when I start researching for my MA. 
I also listened to the Emily Speed interview, which reminded me to check her website again as I haven't been on there recently. I noticed in her news section that she is part of an exhibition soon called Texture of Time which I will have to go to as it also includes another artist I like; Joby Williamson
Lots to think about now and more link exploring, as well as sneezing, I am sure!

Yes, I had seen her work before, but the videos are wonderful. I especially like the paper made from vegetables etc, and know I will have to have a go sometime. I wish you all the best with the MA, as well as being extremely jealous!
Get well soon.

Abigail, hope you're feeling better now. I've been away for a week so lots of catching up to do, but I've enjoyed your links. Loved Susan Mill's Garden Ledger and the crackling of the paper in that and other books was marvellous. Get well!
