* For April Curiosities Workshop Information

 scroll down below this announcement *

a collaborative project between book artists–coast to coast

San Diego Book Arts invites its members, and those of six other book arts organizations, to come together to
CELEBRATE “WHERE YOU LIVE” through a hand-crafted USPS-compliant postcard exchange and freestyle bookmaking project. This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to share your love, perception, or impression of where you live, a place you likely got to know inside and out this past year, with fellow book artists. TAKE PART! What a fun way to welcome fellow artists into your home, yard, neighborhood, city, region, or state.
What a cool way to take a virtual journey through their abode or environs–from the Pacific Coast through the Southwest and up into New England.

How It Works

1. Groups of 16 artists will be matched into mini collaboratives.
2. Each artist will design and mail “where you live” themed postcards to their group members.
3. Each artist will design and craft their own “Wish You Were Here” book that displays all 16 postcards from
their group.
4. All “Wish You Were Here” books, from all groups of 16, will exhibit online and in TBA locations.
