Raging Debate - not at all political

Above: Book Arts Jam 2011

Jim and I have a debate going on. He feels most people don't plan their weekends until the week before. I feel they put things on their calendars months in advance. So we can't agree on the best time to send out notices for events like the upcoming Book Arts Jam. In the tradition of most married couples everywhere, we both just do what we want to do. :-)

This year the Jam takes place in a new and improved location - the Lucie Stern Community Center, 1305 Middlefield Road, Palo Alto, CA. Here is a map to Lucie Stern. There will be artist's books of all kinds, ranging from beautiful handmade books, to the weirder end of the spectrum.

Perhaps you would like to see and hold my "Wave" book, made from scraps of metal left over from other projects. See other views of Wave here.

The Zymoglyphic Museum will also be at the Jam, with a portable diorama and other strange artifacts of the Zymoglyphic culture.

We would be delighted if you could come by and say "hello."
