It’s time for another mini DIY artist’s book. Today’s comes from Ginger Burrell.
You can download the pdf for Ginger’s book here. After printing it will look like this:
As you can see, Ginger has cleverly included all the instructions for making her book on the side of the printed page. If you made Judith Hoffman’s Dreaming made Easy last week, you will notice that Ginger has handled things a little differently, but you won’t find it hard to follow Ginger’s steps.
When you have made your own Pizza Pie, take the time to visit Ginger Burrell’s website.
The site has lots of pictures of her work, and links to things like information about classes and her blog.
Many artist’s books have been created in response to Ed Ruscha’s iconic 26 Gas Stations, either directly or indirectly. I think Ginger Burrell’s 26 Charging Stations is one of the best.
You can see more images in full size (and even buy the book) if you go here.
In (sort of) book arts news: here’s the poster for the Paper Toy exhibition.
In travel news: (updated Friday October 5)
We spent several days in Wasdale. Here’s a picture of a bit of the valley as seen from the path up to Black Sail Pass.
Beeston, our travelling companion, thought he would like to be photographed on the bridge behind the Wasdale Head Inn. Unfortunately he was attacked by a troll disguised as a little red hen.
David rescued Beeston, but was attacked in turn.
Beeston retreated to the top of David’s pack, but the troll continued her assault.
David grabbed his pack and the three of us made a disorderly retreat.
We went from Wasdale to Borrowdale over Stye Head Pass. The weather was mostly clear, and the strong west wind was behind us, pushing us along.
Wednesday was still nice weather so we went for a walk again. Just to be clear, Borrowdale is the wettest part of England, so the image below shows a ‘dry’ day.
Thursday the rain was “chuckin’ it down”, so we decided to travel by bus and sample the fleshpots of Keswick. The highlight was a visit to the Derwent Pencil Museum, where Beeston occasionally became a bit overly interested in the displays. Here he is examining the hopper of a pencil painting machine.
We are off over Honnister Pass to Buttermere tomorrow if the weather holds. (If it rains, there is a bus.) This may be the last travel update until I am home again as I have no idea about internet access from here on. There will be another DIY book project next Sunday.
