Book Arts Jam, 2007

Matchbox pinhole camera demo, 2006.

On Saturday, October 20th I'll be at the Book Arts Jam at Foothill College in Los Altos California. From their web site: "The Book Arts Jam is a one-day celebration at Foothill College in Los Altos Hills, California at which you can view one-of-a-kind handmade artist books, zines, letterpress books and broadsides, mailart, calligraphy, fine art prints, handmade paper and multiples by over 50 exhibitors who are book artists, craftspeople, and workers in the allied fields of letterpress printing, papermaking, printmaking, photography, collage, and paper decoration." The BAJ web site. has photos of past events, directions, a complete list of the demos planned for this year and a list of vendors.

If you're in the area, come and see what's going on. It's a fantastic event. Every time I'm there, I come home exhausted and excited to make books. I'll be doing a pinhole camera demo at 11. Here are my flickr photos from last year's Jam. And if you're into letterpress you might like Zatoichi's flickr photos.
